Krueger Trial Opens
The case of Mrs. Caroline Krueger and her sons, Frank and Leslie, charged with murder, was called for trial in circuit court at Neillsville Monday before Judge James O’Neill. The trial is the aftermath of the battle at the Krueger farm last September, when a posse of federal agents went to arrest the Krueger boys for alleged failure to respond to the army selective law. Soo Station Agent Henry Jensen, Withee, a member of the posse, was killed and five persons were injured including Frank Krueger, who surrendered.
Later Ennis Krueger was shot to death by a deputy.
Leslie was captured in the west, taken to Camp Grant, but turned back to the state authorities.
