A Bad Woman

SACRAMENTO, Aug. 25--J. P. Jones, a colored man of Los Angeles, today swore to a formal complaint charging a woman named Dell Gomez with the murder of his brother, E. C. Jones, in this city on August 15th. The woman is now locked up in the city prison. She was about to leave here for Oregon. It was alleged that the woman and Jones had been living together, and she claimed he was killed while they were struggling for the possession of a pistol with which she says he threatened to shoot her. The police say that the Gomez woman has been the cause of the death of three men--Frank Hosster in Stockton, E. C. Jones in Sacramento and another person, whose name is not known, at Cottage Grove, Ore. It is claimed she was driven out of an Oregon town for living with a Chinaman. She is a white woman about 35 years' of age.
