To File Charge In Slaying Of Iowan

INDEPENDENCE, AP -- Authorities planned Thursday to file a charge of second degree murder against Charles Tudor, 27, of Winthrop in the slaying of Gordon Merritt, 32, of Walker.

County Attorney William G. Klotzbach said the charge will be filed in Justice Court.

Tudor gave himself up and was brought here Wednesday. He is being held in the Buchanan County jail. The slain man formerly was the husband of Tudor's wife and was father of her two small boys.

Sheriff Emery Hart said Tudor admitted he shot Merrill early Wedneday morning as Merritt sat in his car in front of the Tudor home with Mrs. Tudor. The children were asleep in the house at the time.

Hart quoted Tudor as saying that he did not intend to kill Merritt but only to scare him.

The sheriff also said Tudor told him that Merritt had frequently bothered his wife since they were married last July.


Man Held in Shooting
Ex-Husband of Woman Slain in Car


Gordon Merritt Is Victim

Winthrop - A 32-year-old man was shot to death as he sat in his car with his former wife here early Wednesday.

Authorities were holding the woman's present husband in connection with the case. Buchanan County Sheriff Emery Hart said Gordon Merritt, Walker, was shot in the forehead by a bullet from a 32 caliber target pistol.

No Charges

The sheriff identified the man being held as Charles Tudor, 27, Winthrop.

No charges had been filed.

Hart said the shooting occurred in front of the Tudor home here. After the shooting, he said, Tudor went to the home of a neighbor, Loras Hefferman, and asked that the sheriff's office in Independence be called.

The sheriff said Merritt had brought his former wife, who married Tudor last July, home about 12:45 a.m.

Before Midnight

Tudor said Merritt came to their home just before midnight and Tudor decided to "scare him away" with a pistol that shots "soft nose" hollow bullets.

Tudor told the sheriff he shot just once.

Tudor was taken to Independence and jailed.

Mrs. Tudor has two small boys from her marriage to Merritt. The children were asleep in the Tudor home when the shooting occurred.

Note: There were three boys from the marriage of Marie Ilena Dye to Gordon Ray Merritt: Gordon Lee Merritt (age 11), twins Ronald Dee Merritt and Raymond Dean Merritt (age 8).

Mrs. Tudor Relates Shooting Incidents (by Harry Grove, Courier Staff Writer)
INDEPENDENCE -- The events of Jan 3 up to the fatal shooting of Gordon Merritt, 32, Walker, were related here by Mrs. Marie Tudor, 29, wife of the man on trial for second degree murder.

Mrs. Tudor was the only witness Friday morning as the trial of Charles Tudor, 27, Winthrop, moved into its third day.

She recalled the day spent with Merritt, which began at about 10:30 a.m. and ended about 12:45 a.m. the next day with the fatal shooting.

Merritt picked her up the morning of Jan. 3, she said, for a pre-arranged trip arranged by letter to Cedar Rapids. Purpose of the trip was to switch the income tax dependency of their three children from Merritt, her former husband to Tudor.

SHE TESTIFIED that they drove first to Quasqueton and stopped at a tavern where Merritt drank some beer. They stopped again at another tavern near Cedar Rapids.

She said Gordon told her at that point that "there's no need to go to the courthouse" because "it would just be a bunch of red tape."

They then drove to Marion and Mrs. Tudor reported she told Merritt she had to go home and he said he would take her.

They then stopped at a Marion tavern where they remaind from about 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. After leaving Marion, Merritt drove her to a farm of one of his uncle's near Waubeek. He drank some more beer with his uncle.

After departing from the farm, Mrs. Tudor said they drove to Central City and another tavern. She said she again mentioned that she had to get home.

MERRITT MET a friend of his who accompanied them from Central City to another tavern at Prairieburg. She said it was about 11 p.m. when they left that tavern and returned to Central City to drop off Merritt's friend.

They then started to drive home.

Mrs. Tudor testified that after they pulled into the driveway at the Tudor home in Winthrop, she "asked Gordon to come in and tell Bud where we had been."

She said she had her hand on the doorhandle and when the door was opened, she saw her husband standing in the doorway of the car.

She quoted Tudor as shouting, "Damn it, Merritt!"

She said she reached up to pull the gun Tudor was holding away from her face and the gun went off.

MRS. TUDOR RAN into the house and then to a neighbor's home where she heard Tudor say outside that "Marie grabbed the gun."

She said she shouted at that time that she didn't grab the gun because "I didn't want to think I was responsible for a death."

In cross examination Friday morning Mrs. Tudor told Louis Beecher that on Apr. 10 she was taken to a psychiatrist and there recalled that she had grabbed the gun.

Her testimony followed that of Tudor's Thursday in which he illustrated how his wife grabbed the gun before it went off.

He said he had not cocked the gun before arriving at the car and that a broken trigger spring prevented the gun from being fired unless the trigger was first pushed forward. He said it "would have to be a severe blow" on the gun hand to set off the gun with the hammer down.

MRS. TUDOR FRIDAY said that on one of her trips to Independence Jan. 7 after the shooting she went to a doctor, who took a piece of metal from the middle finger of her right hand.

Tudor said in direct examination Thursday that he had noticed a laceration of his wife's finger when she had visited him Jan. 5 at jail.

In testimony Wednesday, a gunsmith and Tudor explained that Tudor's revolver was defective. They said when the revolver was fired, small shavings from the bullet often would break off and fly out through the cylinder.

When asked in cross ecamination Thursday by Beecher if he recognized his wife under the domelight of the car when the door was opened, Tudor replied, "Yes, I suppose I did."

TUDOR TESTIFIED that he wanted to scare Merritt because "I wanted to tell him it was all right to see my wife while I was home but not while I was not at home."

"Why did you take the gun out to the car," he was asked.

"I didn't want any argument."

"Did you expect any argument?"

"If I was bringing another man's wife home in the middle of the night, I would expect an argument."

Tudor also testified under cross examination that he had a fight with Merrit at Walker in 1953, partially over Marie, who was then Mrs. Merritt.

Tudor Trial May Climax Tuesday (By Harry Grove, Courier, Staff Writer)
INDEPENDENCE -- The second degree murder trial of Charles Tudor is expected to reach the jury late Tuesday, according to indications at the 3 p.m. Friday adjournment of district court here.

Defense attorneys Robert Carson, of Independence, and Paul Kildee, of Waterloo, will resume examination of witnesses at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

A previous commitment for Monday by Judge Blair Wood necessitated the long adjournment.

Tudor, a 27-year-old Winthrop mechanic, is accused of murder in the Jan. 4 shooting of Gordon Merritt, 32, of Walker, the former husband of Mrs. Tudor.

Merritt was killed by a single shot from a .22 calibre revolver as he sat with Mrs. Tudor in his car in front of the Tudor home about 12:30 a.m. According to testimony by Mrs. Tudor, 29, she had accompanied Merritt on a planned trip to Cedar Rapids to switch dependency of her and Merritt's three sons from Merritt to Tudor.

SHE TESTIFIED Friday that Merritt did not drive to Cedar Rapids because, he insisted, it would involve "just a bunch of red tape." Merritt stopped at taverns in Quasqueton, Marion, Central City and Prairieburg before returning to Winthrop, Mrs. Tudor testified.

The defense is contending that Tudor kept a loaded revolver in his home as a precaution against prowlers and that his wife grabbed the gun, discharging it accidentally as Tudor opened the door of Merritt's car.

In the crowded courtrooom Friday, a Chicago spectrochemist demonstrated that his analysis indicated identical metallic composition of particles removed from Mrs. Tudor's finger after the shooting and slugs from cartridges of the type used in the Tudor revolver.

TUDOR AND a Waterloo gunsmith testified earlier that Tudor's defective gun often allowed slug shavings to escape between the cylinder and barrel chamber when fired.

The defense is attempting to link Mrs. Tudor's finger wound as corroboration of her and Tudor's testimony that she grabbed the cylinder portion of the gun the instant she saw her husband at the door of Merritt's car.

A psychiatrist is expected to testify Tuesday concerning Mrs. Tudor's cross examination testimony Friday that she recalled through hypnosis Apr. 10 that she had hit the gun.

Under earlier cross examination, she admitted screaming, "I didn't" when she overheard her husband say she grabbed the gun during his explanation on the night of the shooting.

A JURY OF five women and seven men will be called on to return verdicts either of second degree murder or manslaughter or absolve Tudor of criminal guilt in the incident.

Conviction of second degree murder would mean a penitentiary sentence of from 10 years to life. The maximum penalty for manslaughter is eight years in prison and $1000 fine.

Prosecutors Louis Beecher of Waterloo and William Klotzbach, Buchanan county attorney, rested the state's case Thursday.

Tudor Case to Jury Wednesday (By Harry Grove, Courier Staff Writer)
INDEPENDENCE -- Testimony in the second degree murder trial of Charles Tudor ended at 1:35 p.m. Tuesday in district court here.

Attorneys will present final arguments before the court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, and the trial will then be sent to the jury.

Dr. James Cromwell, superintendent of the Mental Health Institute here, was the first witness for the defense Tuesday morning.

In spite of an hour and 40-minute conference in Judge Blair Wood's office Tuesday morning, and a recess at noon, the trial was expected to reach the jury late Tuesday.

As first witness at 9:30 a.m., Dr. Cormwell identified himself on the stand and said that he had examined Mrs. Tudor on April 10.

AT THAT POINT the judge and the defense and prosecution attorney's left the courtroom to confer on the limitations of Dr. Cromwell's testimony. They were out in conference about one hour and 40 minutes.

Tudor, a 27-year-old Winthrop mechanic, is accused of murder in the Jan. 4 shooting of Gordon Merritt, 32, of Walker, the former husband of Mrs. Tudor.

Merritt was killed by a single shot from a .22 calibre revolver as he sat with Mrs. Tudor in his car in front of the Tudor home about 12:30 a.m. According to testimony by Mrs. Tudor, 29, she had accompanied Merritt on a planned trip to Cedar Rapids to switch dependency of her and Merritt's three sons from Merritt to Tudor.

THE DEFENSE is contending that Tudor kept a loaded revolver in his home as a precaution against prowlers and that his wife grabbed the gun, discharging it accidentally as Tudor opened the door of Merrit's car.

When the judge and attorneys returned, Dr. Cromwell took the stand again and Judge Wood overruled an objection by the state for any further testimony by Dr. Cormwell.

He was limited, however, to the stipulations made in that conference.

Under defense questioning, then, at that point Dr. Cromwell said on his Apr. 10 examination of Mrs. Tudor he found she was suffering from "hysterical amnesia," and described that as "the inability to remember, a memory loss due to emotional or psychological causes rather than injury."

HE TESTIFIED further that he had used hypnosis as a method of treatment on Mrs. Tudor and testified that he thought she was now cured.

Under earlier cross examination, Mrs. Tudor admitted screaming, "I didn't" when she overheard her husband say she grabbed the gun during his explanation on the night of the shooting.

The defense then called Loras Heffernen, who testified earlier for the state. He is the operator of the Winthrop service station-tavern to which Tudor ran after the shooting.

The only thing he said for the defense was that he recoalled Tudor telling him that he had dozed before his wife got home that evening.

THE NEXT DEFENSE witness, Floyd Dye, of Cedar Rapids, a brother of Mrs. Tudor, said that he was called to Winthrop on the night of the shooting and described Marie as "hysterical."

He also testified to seeing "a large red area like a burn on her finger."

Friday a Chicago spectrochemist demonstrated that his analysis indicated identical metallic composition of particles removed from Mrs. Tudor's finger after the shooting and slugs from cartridges of the type used in the Tudor revolver.

Tudor and a Waterloo gunsmith testified earlier that Tudor's defective gun often allowed slug shavings to escape between the cylinder and barrel chamber when fired.

THE DEFENSE is attempting to link Mrs. Tudor's finger wound as corroboration of her and Tudor's testimony that she grabbed the cylinder portion of the gun the instant she saw her husband at the door of Merritt's car.

The defense called four witnesses who all called Tudor's reputation "good." They were Dr. A. J. Murphy, Winthrop veterinarian; Mrs. Amanda Harrington, wife of the Winthrop newspaper publisher; I. L. Hand, Winthrop implement dealer, and George Brubaker, Winthrop postmaster.

A fifth character witness was heard Tuesday afternoon for the defense. Harrison Mast, who operates an implement shop in WInthrop where Tudor is currently employed, said of Tudor's reputation that it was 'good."

A jury of five women and seven men will be called on to return verdicts either of second degree murder or manslaughter or absolve Tudor of criminal guilt in the incident.

Defense attorneys are Robert Carson, Independence, and Paul Kildee, of Waterloo. Prosecutors Louis Beecher of Waterloo and William Klotzbach, Buchanan county attorney, rested the state's case Thursday.

DISMISS JURY IN TUDOR CASE
INDEPENDENCE, IA (AP) -- The jury in the Charles Tudor second degree murder trial was discharged early Thursday after the foreman reported that it was hopelessly deadlocked.

The case went to the jury at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday and District Judge Blair Wood discharged the jurors at 3 a.m. Thursday. He set retrial of the case for the September term of court here.
Tudor, 27, Winthrop mechanic, was tried for the fatal shooting of Gordon Merritt, 32, Walker, early the morning of Jan. 4.

Merritt was shot as he sat in his parked car with Mrs. Tudor in front of the Tudor residence. She was his former wife. Merritt had picked her up about 10:30 a.m. Jan. 3 for a business trip to Cedar Rapids.

Mrs. Tudor testified Merritt spent the day stopping in taverns in various towns and never made the Cedar Rapids business stop.

Tudor testified Merritt was shot accidentally. He said his old revolver discharged when Mrs. Tudor grabbed the cylinder after he opened the door of the parked car. The state contended the shooting was deliberate and that Mrs. Tudor merely threw up her hands to protect herself.

Iowan Gets Parole In Slaying Case

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (UP) -- Charles Tudor, 27, Winthrop, Thursday received a bench parole from an eight year prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the killing of a Walker, Iowa, man last January.
Tudor's attorneys met with District Court Judge Blair Wood Thursday and agreed to the lesser charge of manslaughter. Tudor had been tried for second degree murder in April but the jury failed to reach a decision.

The meeting between Wood, Tudor's attorneys and Buchanan County Atty. William Klotzbach came before a new trial could be scheduled.

Tudor had been charged with killing Gordon Merritt, Walker, while Merritt was sitting in a car in front of Tudor's house with Tudor's wife Marie. Mrs. Tudor was divorced from Merritt.

Wood sentenced Tudor to eight years in the Anamosa Reformatory and then issued a bench parole and fined him $500 and court costs.

He told Tudor, who became the father of a baby girl last month "he had learned his lesson through the long deliberations since the shooting.
