arrived later in th? afternoon, sfu
refused to dress the child, and it is
| rumored that she stated publicly that
| she had kept one secret for him but
j was not going to do so uny more.
It further developed that his sister
j who was nursing the mother and
child had stated that he threw the
I child on the floor Frdiay night and
when slje took it up he struck at it,
but missed and struck her. 'Wynn
says this is untrue, but he and his
sister did have a fight.
S. R. Biggs, coroner, with a jury,
I held an inquest at the home late
Sunday night and ordered the sheriff
to arrest Wynn.
Wynn, after being arrested, asked
that he be jM'rmitted to go into the
house. When asked for what purpose,
lit replied that he wanted to get his
: knife and cut hi: throat. After spend
j ing the night in jail, he still denied
, committing the crime. When asked
, why he opposed ait investigation, he
stated'that it was because the neigh
bors had been saying the baby would
j "never be raised, because Oscar and
his wife did not love it."
Wynn said his sister was mad with
him and had turned ugainst him and
hucT said she was going to do all she
coyid against him. He further stated
that the people who lived around ,him
v/erif mao with .him because he wafe
doing well and just wanted to "mess"
Wynn's story of the death is that
lie and his wife were at home alone
with the baby Sunday. His wife told
him to cook dinner; and he went to
the kitchen, cooked dinner, ate, clean
ed up the kitchin and started to take
his wife's dinner to her. He said as
he approached the bed he discovered
the baby dying, whereupon he called
hi wife, who was asleep. He said he
then tuok the baby up and came near
fainting. ' ~^
The .time does not correspond with
the story of his wife, who says she j
went to sleep at 11, and according to:
neighbors the baby was dead by 11.30..
Wynn says his wife might have crush- j
ed the child. He also stated that the
baby had had a knot on the back of
it- head since birth. This could not
be found by doctors. Wynn further
stated that he had proposed to his
wife, after the baby died, that they
hi th jump into the well head first.
The body of the infant was brought
here to Dr. York Monday, who made
an X : ray examination, but his report
las not yet been made public. ,
A preliminary hearing will be giv
en Wynn as soon as the officers have
sufficient time to get the witnesses
