Meyers, Julius (Murder Trial Begins – 10  Jun 1918)

On Monday the trial of Julius Meyers, charged with the murder of his wife, was started at Black River Falls, and it is being heard by Judge Wickham of Eau Claire. Meyers is being defended by E.W. Crosby and District Attorney Rush is being assisted by L.M. Sturdevant and Mr. Becker, an assistant in the attorney general’s office. The state is leaving no stone unturned to secure the conviction of Meyers, for there is very strong circumstantial evidence against him. About 100 witnesses have been subpoenaed in the trial. Among those from here who went as witnesses or in official capacity Monday were R.F. Kounts, F.D. Calway, Sheriff Hewett, Miss Gertrude Cummings, S.F. Hewett.
