About six months ago Mrs. SYLA returned to the parental roof, stating that her husband could not support her. Yesterday she received a telegram from SYLVA saying he would be there today to kill the family. He kept his word. Arriving this morning and going to his wife’s father’s house, he asked his wife, “Allie, will you return to me?’ The young woman replied in the negative, whereupon SYLVA fired at her and she fell. Thinking that he had killed his wife, SYLVA turned the weapon upon himself and sent a ball into his brain. He will die. Mrs. SYLVA was not hurt.
