Mrs. Burleson Took Slaying Precautions, Witness Testifies Made Certain Identity Of Her Victim-to-Be, Hotel Employe Says By the Associated Press. COLUMBIA, S. C„ March 15 Testimony that Mrs. May Walker Burleson, 51-year-old artist, madK certain of the identity of her former husband’s second wife just before she killed her in a hotel cafeteria here a week ago was presented to a coroner's jury which charged her with the slaying. The jury after a brief inquest last night found that Mrs. Richard C. Burleson. 55-year-old wife of a United States Army colonel sta tioned near here, “came to her death by pistol shot wound inflicted by Mrs. May Walker Burleson." “I observed the first Mrs. Burleson smoking cigarettes on the mezzanine floor for several hours before the shooting,” said Miss Frederica Altee, a hotel employe. “She came down and asked me if the person who had just entered the cafeteria was Mrs. Burleson and I said yes. Then she went on into the cafeteria.” Police had quoted the tall, buxom divorcee, member of a prominent Galveston (Tex.) family and on* time suffragette leader, as saying her mind had “gone blank” when she was sitting qn the mezzanine and saw the second Mrs. Burleson enter the lobby. Frank Andrews, another witness, said the first Mrs. Burleson was “just as calm as she could be” when she walked into the cafeteria and fired the old rusty pistol she con cealed in a black handbag. He said the second Mrs. Burleson looked up and screamed when she recognized the divorcee. Several other witnesses gave similar testimony. _ _ Save 25% *? 50% Diamonds A visit to our showrooms st will reveal the substantial sa vines!
