He drifted Into the Huffman community, on the Mississippi river, northeast of here, and secured employment as a. laborer on ii government levee fleel, Saturday night thc killer was tektn Into cuslody when a woman protested thai he had attempted to mistreat her, a charge which officers believe to be unfounded and based on a grudge. Story Is Confirmed Lambert's story was verified by A. H. Borders. Calhoun county, Ala., sheriff, by long distance telephone last night. Tilts morning W. L. Borders, chief deputy, and H. T. Green, deputy, arrived to return Lambert to Annlston. The prisoner expressed pleasure at see- Ing the Alabatna officers and readily agreed to waive extradt- tion. He described in detail how- he had eluded pursuers after the .shooting, and his wan- r.ild he had planned on several occasions to surrender and once went back to Annlston for thai purpose but had always backed out at the lasl minute until yesterday.
