A midnight struggle to which there were no witnesses, a gasping, dying girl and a fleeing mnn. his clothing bespattered with the woman's blood, were the Introductory features of an east side tragedy that kept the police busy yesterday. Mary Sexton, alias McCarthy, c.thar was murdered by William Flannelly. her lover, or took her own life, as he was about to desert .her. She was nineteen years old and he twenty-three. The killing took place In the single tencn-.cnt house, No. 222 Chrystle street, known an the "Three Deuces." Flannelly and Mary Sexton lived In two rear rooms on the fourth floor. The other tenants were asleep and no one heard the pistol shot that ended the girl's life. Just before 1 A. M. Mrs. Christina Schnaff. who lives on the third floor, beard a body fall In the narrow hall above, followed by klcklnjr and scrambling. She thought one of her neighbors was drunk, and, as the noise continued, she slipped on a wrapper and stepped out of her door to admonish the peace breaker. TUT SCRSK OK T li: ti M t'IDF.'B homo Is at No. 137 Pavonla nvonue, Jersey City, where his mother, sister and brother, the latter u incmbor of iho nollcc force, Hvo. He pave his occupation na truck driver, but con- fensod to Cnpt. Devery that he hnd not worked for thrne mouthR. but hivl hcon FUpported by Mary Sexton. Tho two hnd lived at No. 35 Prospect street, Hrooklyn, and at No, 4Z Great Jones ytrrc-t, where they were Known as Mr. and Mrs. McCarthy. The two rooms In which they lived nt the "Throe Deuces" were nicely furnished. The plrl was said to be extremely jealous of Flannelly, and this fact Is thought to be the root of the trouble. Mary's home was at No. 133 Pavonla avenue. Just a few doors from the Flannelly home, and the two had grown up together. Mary's mother, who Is a poor washerwoman, paid yea- terday that Flannelly lured her daughter from homo, but Flannelly declares that she left Jersey City to avoid arrest for robblnc a man of $100. Mrs. Soxton has four sons, the oldest seventeen years, and her daughter has contributed materially to their support. The pistol with which tht* girl was killed was found under the bed. It appears that the trouble occurred Just Inside the door leading from the sitting- room Into the common hall, and the girl fell so that her head lay In the bedroom at" and run ward down the slalrwa Flannelly has a adjolnlng. She must have arisen in after Flnnnedlly, but fell back- way. flesh wound In his _ ___________ ______ __ left arm noar the elbow, the ball having passed first through his arm from the inside and then Into Mary's neclt. Flannelly explained these peculiar wounds by declaring that the girl had tho re- and volver In her left ha and pointed at «ABT SEXTOS, TTIK TICTIM. The hall was dark and she could see nothing, but she delivered a scolding as she walked along, guiding herself by the bannisters. Suddenly she felt something wet dripping over her arm and shoulder. She retreated to her room, where, to her horror, she discovered that It was covered with blood. Mrs. Schaaff secured a lamp and climbed the stairs. There, lying with her feet over the top steps, was Mary Sexton. Blood poured from a wound In the girl's neck. She was choking and paspmg and could not speak. Mrs. Schaaff ran to a window, stuck .ier head out and cried "police!" She aroused the others In the house, and soon several of them had started for a policeman. Two bluecoals arrived. They carried the dying girl Into her sitting- room and kitchen combined, only a stop away, and tried to get a statement from her. Their efforts were of no avail, and It was evident that the unfortunate girl was dying. At this Juncture two men mounted the stairs and entered the room. One was Policeman Thomas W. Kennelly, of the Mulberry street station. In citizen's clothes. The other was William Flannelly, the dying woman's lover. Kennelly led Flannelly up to the girl, who lay upon the floor, and bending over her asked: "Did this man shoot you?" The only reply was a gurgle and the woman was dead. "No, I didn't do It; she shot herself," Flannelly blurted out. "Let me kiss her before I go." The prisoner knelt down and Imprinted two kisses upon the bloody lips. He made no other show of feeling, and , quietly accompanied the policeman to the Kldrldge street station. Just a few moments before he was brought to No. 222 Chrystle street, Flannelly had given himself up, declaring that he had shot Mary Sexton. The theory of the police Is that he did not think she was mortally hurt when he confessed so glibly, and that when he saw that she was dead and could not tell of his murderous work, he quickly resolved to deny the crime and escape Its consequences. He and the girl were all alone when the crime was done, one could say he had killed her. No Flannelly and Mary were In the 'Ivy saloon and hotel, No. 3(M Bowory, the praceJIng evening. Mary was wlih Stella white, a buxom and good-looking young woman. They sat at a table In the rear of the saloon. Flannelly entered, but did not see them. He asked James Butler, the barkeeper. If he had seen his "girl." her head. He threw up his left arm, when the pistol exploded and both were wounded. Susan Kelly gave 5200 bonds for her appearance ns a witness, while Stella White was sent to the House of Detention. Mary Sexton's late fomalc associates are taking tip a collection to save the body from Potter's Field. TUI.D HOW WICKED S1IEKHAN IS.
