New, who said he is a son of Senator S. New of Indiana, drove to the police station with the body of his sweetheart early Saturday and told the police he had killed her.
News mother, Mrs. Lulu Burger of Glendale, was reported to be on the way here from Indianapolis to aid in her sons defense. His employers told the police they would provide temporary counsel for him.
