- CRESCO, Ia., May 23. (Special ) Unless
the defense can put up a stronger story
than already sprung Mrs. Sofia Kruger
will be convicted of murder of her husband,
Gustav on the night of April 19, in the
opinion of the county attorney. Mrs.
Kruger's stories of her husband's disap
pearance have differed. She said he had
probably drowned himself, tnen that he had
gone visiting and a third tale was that he
had visited a relative, and she left the
impression that he might have been killed
by caving in of a well. Mrs. Kruger has
kept qUIet since her arrest, and her coun
sel appear confident of clearing her. Kru
ger's body was found In the river. One
story Is that he had gone fishing and was
drowned, but the officers found blood on
the floor, stove and furniture. Kruger's
skull showed several holes and fractures,
and It ia surmised by the state that his
wife killed him with a pick, hauled his
body to the river and tied rocks to It, as
weights were found on it by the men who
dragged the river. Preliminary examina
tion resulted In binding over Mrs. Kruger
to the grand Jury, which meets June 8.
