T h e defendant was held without ball

whether the case was one o f murder

on the second floor o f the tliree-story
home o f John Lantry with one o f his
children.
Ills w ife and the other
child slept in a room directly across
the hall.
F o r the Inst few years Francis Lan­

But he told his w ife the
night before the shooting that he
would go over and "have It out with

hours.
Francis Lantry Informed his

T h e dispute finally quieted down
nnd Mrs. Flood went to her room.
Soon after, her huband went to his
own room. Francis Lantry helped his
father, who was III, tow ard the fa ­

through the room occupied by Mrs.
Flood and her small daughter.
The elder Lantry stumbled and fell
to the floor nt the threshold o f his
room. His son, Francis, engaged with
his sister In a new dispute.

I.— When Joseph
Flood married Catherine U n t r y , sev­
eral years ago, her brother, 1 rancls,
made a tremendous to-do about It. It
didn't help matters when the couple
went to liv e with the bride's father,
John Lantry.
F or Francis reasoned
that the couple were planning to work
John I.untry's house aw ay from him
And that, o f course— he made bold to
announce to the couple— meant that
he might lose Ids share o f the Inheri­
tance.
That dispute developed rancorously
through the years. It reached a tragic
climax one morning recently. And late
