Murder and Suicide

STERLING. Cok>., Aug. 24— A
theory of double murder and suicide
was advanced by Deputy Coroner
Robert M. Jackson today in the
deaths of Charles D. Milford, 54
vear-old sugar mill official; his
wife Ethyl. 50, and their 15-year-old
Milford's pa jama-clad body was
found last night, slumped over the
wheel of the family car in the
garage, and the bodies of his wife
and daughter were discovered In
The girl had been struck repeat
edly in the back of the head, Cor
oner Jackson said, and the older
woman had apparently been stran
gled and her throat was slashed.
He said Milford probably died of
carbon monoxide poisoning.
A neighbor, who became curious
at a lack of activity in the home,
discovered the bodies.
A bloody hatchet found in a
washbowl was being forwarded to
day to Denver for fingerprint analy
sis. Mr. Jackson said that while
• all evidence at hand makes it ap
pear a double murder and suicide,”
a lack of blood on Milford's paja
mas prompted the analysis of the
The only clue to the probable time
of the incident was a neighbor's
report that the Milford setter in a
kennel at the rear of the house
barked and howled mournfully about
5 a m. yesterday morning.
Two weeks ago, Mr, Jackson said,
Milford had been treated at a local
; hospital for a nervous condition, but
appeared normal to associates upon

There are sorrows so deep in the human
