FIGHTING IN New Castle Man Held In Wife's Death NEW CASTLE, Ind. (UPI)— Charles Crabtree, 29, New Castle, today was | scheduled for a preliminary hearing in . City Court here in the shooting and beating death- of his wife, the second such incident in Indiana in two weeks. Crabtree's German-born wife, Christa, 23, was shot to death Saturday night on a Henry County road about nine miles northeast of New Castle, in what Crabtree allegedly has described to police as an accident during a violent argument in the couple's car. . It almost was exactly two weeks ago - that authorities found Loyed Key,- 30,' Marion, standing next to his borrowed car along Interstate 69 near Daleville, =with the body of his wife in the front seat. The woman was shot six times in the head and Key and his alleged paramour, Mrs.- Phyllis-Hazelbaker, 30, an Alexandria divorcee, have since been charged with first degree murder in the slaying. Says Accidential Henry County Sheriff Warren Davis said Sunday Crabtree admitted to him that the shooting was an accident. He said, however, that Crabtree had thus far refused to sign a formal statement in the woman's death. Davis said Crabtree accompanied Davis, Deputy Sheriff James Covey and Indiana State Police trooper Martin Werling to the scene of the shooting Sunday morning. At, the scene, Davis said Crabtree told him hei had the .22-caliber pistol• in his- hand • as the couple argued and his wife grabbed, for .the. weapon ..,.* Crabtree said he then let go of the auto's steering wheel without stopping the car and grabbed the pistol with both hands, Davis said. He said Crabtree told authorities the gun - discharged as Crabtree pulled it away from his wife. Son In The Car Davis said the couple's son, Byron, 7, .apparently was in the car at the time and may have witnessed the shooting. Crabtree was arrested shortly after carrying the woman's body into the emergency room of Henry County Hospital Saturday night, where she was pronounced dead on -arrival of a gunshot - wound in the chest. Davis said the woman had been severely beaten about the face. He said authorities believe the beating may have been administered with a. pair of metal kunckles found in Crabtree's car.

Taylor was in Washington last week for higher level strategy talks in Washington with President Johnson and Defense Department officials.
