G!8 Limit of Law n Pis of Guilty of
TELLS STORY OF CHOKING WIFE TO DEATH
Charles Cnckley, Who Was Arrested
and Coarlotea of Murder After
Being a Fngltlre for Thirty
Years, Ask a Pardon.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Ia., June 11. (Special.)
By the sentence of Charles W. Graves cf
this city to eight year In th penitentiary
today In the district court, there was closed
one of the strangest cases that has come
before the courts here. Graves confesses
to having choked his wlf to death In a
quarrel, then setting Are to the body and
the house to destroy evidence of the crime
But it was done In such a way that the
state had no positive evidence of anything
and but for the fact that the doctors de
clared the wife had been choked to death.
Grave would never have been arrested.
But he was Indicted and tried and con
victed of murder in the first degree and
gtven a life sentence. The court ' allowed
a new trial on the ground that the verdict
was not sustained by the evidence and
because of prejudice of a Juror. It be
came evident that If the law was followed
strictly, there could b no conviction and
the county attorney accepted a plea of
guilty of manslaughter from Graves. Then
ha tofd of his having had frequent quarrels
with bis wife and having choked her on
many occasions and that on this occasion
he killed her. But the heaviest sentence
that could be given Graves was eight
years. This was Imposed today by Judge
McHenry. There was much local Indigna
tion because of the fact, but It waa either
that or freedom for th confessed crim
inal. Cackley to Ask Parole.
. It became, known to Governor Cummins
today that an application will be made
for the parole of Charles Cackley, now
serving ten years for murder from Van
Buren county. Cackley returned from the
war In 1S66 and was sent to Jail for drunk
enness In 186$. He broke Jail and killed
a constable In the fracas. He went to
Washington county, Missouri, where he
assumed the name of John Beck and thirty
five years ago married an estimable woman
and settled down as a farmer. Last winter
It was discovered that he was the Charles
Cackley who had committed murder at
Farmlngton. He was brought back, con
fessed and was sentenced. Now a large
number of his old neighbors In Missouri
have sent the governor a petition for clem
ency based on their thirty years' acquaint
ance with blm, declaring him to have lived
a blameless life all that time, and stating
that he leaves a wife and three dependent
children.. Th governor has also received
letters from persons In Illinois and Minne
sota asking him to investigate, and a pro
test from the sheriff-of Van Buren county.
Cackley was discovered through an appli
cation for a pension which he filed.
