HE TRIED TO BUY WIFE OF MAN WHO KILLED HIM
Bedford, Iowa, March 2 - A remarkable story of an effort to compel a husband to give up his wife has been told in the trial of the State vs. James HENDRICKSON charged with the murder of James WOODSIDE. The defendant declared WOODSIDE persisted in wanting to buy his wife. It is said HENDRICKSON killed WOODSIDE because of his persistent attempt.
The defense in the case is that the man who was killed after winning the affections of the wife, taunted and haunted HENDRICKSON to such an extent that he became virtually insane, and in that condition committed the crime.
