“Warrant Sworn Out For L. A. Cheshire”
As an aftermath of the killing of Mr. Tom Kemp at White Springs last week, Mr. J. L. Kemp on Monday of this week swore out a warrant against Mr. L. A. Cheshire, the town marshal who alleges that he shot Mr. Kemp in self defense.
Following the shooting, Mr. Kemp was taken to a hospital at Lake City where he died soon after arrival of his wound and the following day a coroner’s jury was called and after hearing evidence exonerated the town marshal.
However, the son, L. J., did not feel that the matter should stop there and, as stated, swore out the warrant Monday.
It is alleged that there is considerable feeling over the happening among friends and relatives of the dead man and that the case will probably be quite an interesting one.
