TUTEN NOT GUILTY, SAYS JURY.
Hampton County Farmer Freed of
Bamberg, Nov. 18.-Leroy B. Tuten,
of Hampton county, is not guilty of
the murder of J. R. Langford, accord
ing to the decision reached by the
jury in the case early this afternoon.
Two and a half days were consumed
in the trial of the case which was
brought here from Hampton county.
Leroy B. Tuten was accused of the
murder of J. R. Langford, the alleged
killing having taken place on the 29th
day of last November, a short distance
from the little town of Brunson, in
Hampton county. It was alleged that
Mary Harris was in company with the
deceased at the time he met his death,
and she appeared in court as an eye
witness, testifying 'that Tuten com
mitted the deed, using the butt of his
gun to inflict the mortal wound.
It is recalled that Richie Williams,
a negro living on the Tuten place at
the time of the alleged crime, figured
prominently in the events leading up
to the trial. He was not placed on
the stand, although he has been held
in jail and in the penitentiary since
the death of Langford. He it was
whom Mary Harris first charged with
the deed, and upon her word a num
ber of Hampton county citizens made
chase for him. He was safely kept,
however, after arrested, and later the
charge against him was withdrawn.
It is presumed that there will be nc
further prosecution against him.
