Evidence Begins to Show That Mrs. Jennings Had No Hand In Commit ting the Deed State Hasn't Yet Shown Exact Locality of the Shoot ing The Detective's Evidence Cor oner Mix Gives Voluminous Evidence, Tedious cross-examination by the defense-was what marked the fifth day's proceedings of the East Haven murder trial yesterday. Detective Donnelly was the target at which counsel for the prisoners did most of their shooting. As stated in the Courier yesterday the case has revealed and exposed the mis erable life led by.the family, and many things are being brought out in the ev idence tending to show that the domes tic relations were far from happy. The quarrels and hard words between Jen nings and his wife seem to have been of frequent occurrence, and the lad Taylor seems v to have resented the harsh treatem'ent meted out to his mother by her husband. The evidence produced so far does not seem to give any proof that Mrs. Jennings had any part in the committing of the deed, while the general sentiment seems to prevail that the lad, Taylor, is more or less of a degenerate and that the shoot ing was done more on the spur of the moment and was not deliberately plan ned or premeditated. On the other hand it is shown that Taylor got pos session of the pistol just before the deed, and that this looked as if he meant to use it. The pistol, a murder, ous 32-callbre, was produced during to. day's evidence. Detective Donnelly was on the stand for three hours and twenty minutes. His evidence was as follows: Detective Henry J. Donnelly was re called to the witness stand. He said that When he was coming back to the city .with young Taylor on the Monday following the murder, from the place where Taylor had secreted the revol ver, and after the shooting, that Tay lor said his mother first hid the weapon In another place. " Donnelly reiterated the story of the shooting. The witness said that Taylor told him: further "We met the old man as we were driving down to meet him. The old man said, 'Get out of the wagon, you .' i I pulled the revolver, but did not bring him down and then I fired again and struck him in the breast. He said, 'I am shot, send for a doctor.' "Ma laughed and said they were blanks that I was firing. "We got him In the -carriage and drove him home, head down. He made a kind of a rattling noise. We got him home and took off his coat, and there was blood on his shirts. Then ma hol lered and I took the gun out again and said, 'You shut up or I'll shoot you too.' Then I hung up the revolver and went for the doctor." Later Taylor said regarding the ar rival of the coroner's party on the scene of the tragedy, "If I'd known what you fellows were up to I'd have shot you." Here the defense objected and Mr. Webb claimed this evidence was a part of the state's whole case of obtaining evidence from the boy under duress and by force. . Donnelly said that the boy told him: "I ain't much of a man with my hands but I am with a revolver." Question by the Btate: "Did you see the sand stains on the dead man's coat and hat?" ' Thb referred to the defense's claim that Jennings was shot down in the road from the home, while it Is ex pected the state will endeavor to show that the couple shot the man after they got him home. Answer: "When we went down to East Haven the first time we gathered up the dead man's clothes and placed his shoes Inside of them. On our sec ond visit to the house we found that the sand from the shoes had stained'' Objected to and objection sustained, .Later the state managed to get In evidence that the sand stains of the clothes might have come from the shoes worn by the dead man, and not necessarily from falling. This, tf be lieved by the jury, will dispose of the idea that Jennings was away from his house. . At 12 o'clock Attorney Webb, who represented the boy, took Detective Donnelly in hand. He laid stress on the fact that Donnelly in obtaining the confession from the woman, used "dur ess" In that he kept saying "go on, and tell what happened." Donnelly admit ted that he never told the coroner what Taylor told him about the two khots. He thought Taylor's statements were strong, but he never thought It neces sary to bring the matter to the atten tion of the coroner. Many of Taylor's damaging state ments a3 made by the witness, the witness admitted that 1".9 never heard Taylor so testify before the coroner. "Did you say," asked Webb, "that Taylor said, after the shooting, I have fixed him all right this trip; get down and give me a hand.' " At that time It Is claimed that Taylor was speaking to his mother, who was in tht carriage with his mother. The witness made a non-committal answer. Just before the noon adjournment State Attorney Williams let loose a pcint which shows that the state has tint yet told just where it thinks the murder was committed. He showed a photograph of the roads at the fork of the road from behind Tyhich it is sa'd young Taylor shot Jennings. The defense objected to this, claiming that this ought net to come In. The state thereupon said that It claimc this testimony, from the fact that it was not clear as to where the shooting took place. "I have not yet committed myself as to the localitv of the shooting," said Mr. Williams. Detective Donnelly testified that the boy could have seen over the rocks to make the shot indicated. Dr. Eliot followed Detective Donnelly. The doctor recited the facts pertaining to his examination as acting medical examiner of the wounds and the body of the murdered man. He was followed by Dr. W. H. Carmalt, who appeared as an expert witness. Dr. Carmalt also gave evidence regarding the nature of the wounds and what he considered was the direct cause of Jennings' death. Mrs. William H. Carpenter, matron at the Organized Charities, testified as to the appearance of Mrs. Jennings who was brought to. that institution from police headquarters on the night of the murder. Her evidence went to show that there were no marks or bruises on Mrs. Jennings,' Coroner Mix next went on the stand and testified at considerable length in regard to the conversation he had with the lad Taylor. He read from his notes. He reiterated much of the evidence al ready produced regarding the boy's tes timony as to the meeting of the trio In the woods, the attempt of the mur dered man to take hold' of the horse which the boy was driving; how he chased the youth, and the threats to his wife, the violent language used on both sides and his assault on her by striking her In the face, and the ulti mate shooting of the murdered man by the lad Taylor. At 5 o'clock Coorner Mix was still giving his evidence and Judge Roraback proposed 'ail adjourn ment, but as the coroner had only another pag to read he was allowed by the court to continue his testimony, at the closeof which the court adjourned unui tins morning at iu o ciocit. .
