Floyd and Claude Allen Must
Richmon, Va., Nov. 18.-A new
trial was Monday refused Floyd
Allen and his son. Cloude Swan
son Allen, by the Supreme Court,
of Virginia. The men are con
e demed to die in the electric chair
e next Friday for the murder of
officials of the Darroll county
- court at Hillsville, March 14.
Fioyd Allen was convicted
1 May 17, specifically for the kill
ing of Commonwealth Attorney
William M. Foster. Allen's son,
tried on the charge of killing
2 Judge Thornton L. Massie, was
20 convicted and sentenced to fif
4 teen years in the penitentiary.
A second trial, on an indictment
00 for the killing of Attorney Foster,
resulted in a conviction for mur
2 der in the first degree July 27.
It is believed that Governor
25 Mann will not interfere with the
00 execution of the sentence im
0 posed by the courts. The ap
peal to the Supreme Court for I
25 new trials, decided adversely
ad Monday, had been pending for
ur- some time, but Virginia officials
for have proceeded with arranges
red ments for the execution of the
to men, believing that no clemency
would be shown.
