On arriving there, as testified by Mrs. King, Mr. Morgan said, "Get up from there Grace", and fired at Sutton, who was sitting on the porch, from a distance of about ten feet. The shot entered just over the heart, cutting the aorta. Mr. Morgan says that he shut in self defense, and that Mr. Sutton was rising (rem his seat and was about to shoot him. The body was found around the corner of the house about forty feet from the scene of the shooting by the Sheriff on his arrival, and beside it was a shot gun.
