Stump fixed bail at $100,000 each, and the three are scheduled for arraignment Monday. The complaint, drawn by Deputy County Attorney Frank Armstrong, paints a gruesome picture of the bru- jtal operation upon the young woman, I who died last Wedndesday from gen- |eral peritonitis, allegedly resulting jfrom the operation. The charge does not specify any particular degree of murder, and therefore includes murder in either the first or second degrees, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.
