Doctors Offer
Leading Point
in State Case
Dr. C. V. Rugh, Autopsy Physician, Dr.
George Adler, Coroner, on Stand at
Manning Murder Trial
Medical testimony tending to show that the first bal
let fired into Ralph Horan's body entered his heart and
instantly killed him a point state's attorneys admit has
a major place in their case was presented at Thursday
morning's session of the first degree murder trial of Hor
ace M. Manning. ' ;
Horan was wounded twice in the gunplay in Man-
nings office February 12, once in the right arm and once
in the heart. Failure of hemhorrage in the arm wound
was emphasized by the state as an indication that Hor
an's heart had already stopped when that wound was
inflicted. - . ' . .
It is understood the state, possibly through testimony
of E. O. Heinrich, will attempt to connect Horan's heart
wound with the oaken chair sitting across the desk from
Manning's red leather chair in the death room. ..
There is an ..alleged bul
let bruise on the chair back,
state testimony has already
indicated there were slivers
of wood around the bullet
hole in the back of Hor
an's coat, and a bullet was
found under the oaken
chair. .
..Apparently, the state is
seeking to forestall defense
theories: of a duel and a
dive for guns by placing
Horan in the wooden chair
when he was shot the first
The defense took advantage df
the presence of Dr, C. V. Hugh
and Drr George H.-Adler on the
arltnasa atanit. to aUDOOrt ft DO-
tentlal contention that Horan's
muscular action continued aner
he was shot through tbe heart
This it la haltered, the defense
will use in reconciling Its theory
of a gun duel wltn. Horan s posi
tion after death. ' The defense
rartirninrlr indicated a desire to
show that muscular reaction after
a heart wound mlgm tnrow Hor
an's right foot over the rung in
the bottom of Manning's desk,
where state evidence shows it was
found by investigators.
Sheriff Low on Stand:
Tho mndleal testimony waa
marked by frequent nso ot scien
tific terms ana anatomical woras
that contrasted sharply with the
homely western terminology of
Sheriff Lloyd Low, who preceded
the doctors on the stand.
The courtroom was jammed
again for the second day ot the
state's case. District Attorney T.
R. Glllenwaters Indicated that
the prosecution may be, ready to
rest by Friday night. In view ot
tho fact the district attorney pre
viously stated he was calling
about 40 witnesses, thla was seen
as an Indication the atate may
be saving some ot its big guns
for rebuttal.
Direct Statement Blade.
The direct statement that in
his opinion the heart wound was
the first Inflicted on Horan's
body was made by Dr. Adler,
who was on the atahd well over
an hour at the morning session.
The doctor is also county cor
oner, and assisted Dr. C. V. Rugh
in making the autopsy on Hor
an's body the night ot Febru
ary 12.
Sheriff Low resumed his tes
timony this' morning where it
had been cut short by adjourn
