(UP Farmer Ed Gcin, who confessed slaying and butchering a woman storekeeper and stealing other women's . corpses from their graves, began today the first day of what probably will be a life term in a mental Institution. Gein was taken to tlieCentral Slate Hospital for ths Criminally insane at aupun, Wis., Monday night after a judge ruled that he was Insane. , . . The decision stirred resentment I n the shy bachelor farmer's hometown of Plainfield, Wis., and Circuit Judge Herbert Bunde termed the ruling "the toughest I've had to make." ' Bunde, in ordering the 61-year-old 61-year-old 61-year-old 61-year-old 61-year-old murder of two women to the state hospital, said Gcin probably will never see the outside world again. Gein had been held at the hospital fof observation most of the time since his rambling "house of horrors" was discov covered. t Two psychiatrists testified Gein was legally insane, but a third said that although Gein was medically medically insane he knew the difference difference between right and wrong and therefore was legally sane. Wisconsin Atty. Gen. Stewart Honecfc, who took personal charge of the prosecution, demanded that Gein be punished for miirripr Honeck 'later indicated, however lie would nqt appeal the ruling.
