Description: Admits Murdering Wife.

Date: January 23 1914

Newspaper published in: Farmington, MO

Galesburg, Ill.

Robert HIGGINS confessed to the murder of his wife Jan. 5. HIGGINS implicated Julia FLAKE, his 15 year old stepdaughter, who told her story of conspiracy to murder Mrs. HIGGINS to county officials in Galesburg. The fact that Mrs. HIGGINS had become aware of the alleged relations between her daughter and her husband and that there was some talk in the village furnished the motive, according to the county officials.
