Aged Man Hanged After Sentence Was Commuted
-------
PITTSBORO, Miss., Wednesday.—His death sentence once commuted to life imprisonment by an acting Governor, only to have the Governor return, issue a statement that the records of his office did not show a commutation and order him from the State farm back to the death cell, Charles H. Ivy, sixty-five years old, yesterday was hanged in the little red brick jail here for the murder of Love Bagwell in 1919.
In the hope that Governor Russel would grant eleventh hour executive clemency, for which the Sheriff of this county and two members of the Pardons Board had interceded, the hanging was deferred until late yesterday.
