Trimble Bodies of 8 Abbott Methodists To lienor Students Slayer cf Scrcntcn Native Judged Insane franliDcmpsey CLD EE'S . .. ' La Grange, Tex. June 16 UP) A Fayette County jury today Judged Dr. Lloyd L.Ross, convicted San Antonio slayer, insane. - It was : an instructed ' verdict from District Judge J. R. Fuchs, on recommendation from District Attorney X Lee Dittert The trial's abrupt ending came after the first two witnesses, both physicians, had testified that Ross is permanently Insane. : r Ross was convicted October 23, 1947, for the slaying of Mrs. Gertrude York, wife of a San Antonio Investment banker. He was sentenced to the electric chair. : However, Texas law commits any defendant found insane to a mental institution and does not allow the death penalty, yi f v Dr. Boss also was charged with the fatal shootings of Mrs. York's husband, Willard7and two other members of their - family,- Ross Is a native of Dellroy, Ohio. The York family formally lived in Scranton. . f Ross ambushed the York family on a lonely road near New Brun-fels May 25, 1947. They were driv ing to church. Only one member or the lamiiy, Ann, then 13, escaped death., She was wounded. Ross' defense contended he was insane and the crimes were prompted by the surgeon's losof his savings of $150,000 which he had entrusted to York for investment. Many students believe that nrim- itive men, sometimes called savages, are predominantly religious in their outlook. CARD OF The Family of the Late MBS. ANNA KASACZLN 105 N.
