His employer returning homo after
a somewhat prolonged absence was
shot and killed. Scbultz and the cm

was the result of accidental discharge
of a shotgun caused by its falling from
the wall where it hung. The neigh

murder. The Indictment of the cou

grand jury. The trial took place at
West Point and was one of the most

cumstantial , he succeeded in convict
ing Schultz on charge of murder in
the second degree. Schultz served his
sentence and then returned to north
east Nebraska. The past five years
he spent in the county poor house.
The immediate cause of his death was
