Mrs. Lee Denies Part in Husband's Death, 1905
Aug. 30, 1905
WOMAN DENIES PART IN CRIME
Mrs. Lee Talks of Husband's Death.
Spring Place, Ga., August 29. (Special). Sheriff Graves arrived late last night from Chattanooga with Mrs. John Lee, charged with complicity in the murder of her husband in this county last spring.
"My husband was very fractious and he was not in a good humor after supper and walked off. We all went to bed and along in the night my 6-months-old baby got to fretting and woke me. I looked over in the other beds and did not see my husband.
"They said I helped Mr. Hicks carry my husband to the saw mill in a quilt. Why, it is a long quarter of a mile from the house to that mill and I could not have done that to save my life. I was weaning my baby and was so sick and weak I could scarcely do my work about the house.
