Krueger, Caroline (Sued for Damages – Oct 1918)
Mrs. Caroline Krueger and son, Frank, are now in jail in this city awaiting trial on the charge of murder. They were brought down from Eau Claire last week by Sheriff Hewett, having been turned over to Clark County for trial. Monday they were given a preliminary hearing, but which was postponed until later, as Frank has not recovered sufficiently from his wounds to appear in court. They will be tried at the fall term of court.
In addition to being tried for murder, Mrs. Krueger and her sons will be made defendants in heavy damage suits which involve practically all that the family has accumulated in years of hard labor. Mrs. Lillian Jensen, wife of Harry Jensen, who was killed by the Kruegers, is suing for $10,000 damages and H.M. Root as special administrator for the estate of Harry Jensen is suing for $10,000. C.R. Sturdevant and O.W. Schoengarth are attorneys for Mrs. Jensen and C.R. Sturdevant is attorney for H.M. Root. Mads Madsen, through his attorneys, O.W. Schoengarth and A.L. Devos, is suing for $5,400. Through E.W. Crosby, Emil Lainis is suing for $20,300, Angus Page for $5,175, Frank White for $5,175 and C.A. Olson for $1,000. These damage suits total $57,050 and if verdicts are rendered for the plaintiffs, will use up the entire Krueger holdings.
