Winchester, Ky., June 19.
Three persons are dead and or probably fatally wounded as a result of gun battles in Clark County within the past 24 hours.
Two of them, Charles Abner, 2? years old, railroad employee, and Mrs. Lucy Webster, 27 years old, wife of Ben Webster, both of Winchester were killed this afternoon in a pistol battle in which five persons figured ________.
Virgil Parker, 37 years old, a farmer living about five miles from Winchester on Ironworks Pike was killed late Saturday night at his home by his stepdaughter after he had fired several shots from his pistol and threatened the lives of members of the family.
James Palmer, 35 years old, railroad employee, his father, Austin Palmer, and Abner drove to the home of R. L. Loving, on Melbourne Avenue, police said. Mrs. Webster, who is the daughter of Mr. Loving, came to the door and called her father to the porch.
Upon being ordered by Loving not to come in, James Palmer fired at them with a .38 calibre pistol, his first shot taking effect at the base of Mrs. Webster's brain. Loving returned fire and Abner slumped down in his seat in the automobile, fatally wounded. James Palmer received a serious wound in his side from the pistol of Loving.
The men who survived the fight were arrested by Cheif Bush and Patrolmen Tharpe and Davis. James Palmer is charged with the murder of Mrs. Webster, Loving is charged with the murder of Charles Abner, and Austin Palmer was first charged with carrying concealed deadly weapon but was later arrested on addition charge of malicous shooting without wounding. He was released on bond.
