The confessipns 'revealji Bill as the one who struck .the :nrist blow. Martin was hit.:frprri'"behincl while driving the taxi on a .loiiely side road off Highway '18 near Manila Bill, using a long iron bolt as his weapon, apparently missed a second Wow aimed at young Martin's head. As the youthful driver staggered out of the car the elder Barnes grabbed his arms and pinned them b=- hlnd him while Bill : struck him across the head from in ' front. Then, according to the confessions. Martin was dragge dinto a cotton field, nearby and Frank,Barnes, his own' statement read, cut Martin's throat, almost from ear to ear. Thc only motive for the killing given by the defendants in their <t confessions was that they wanted the taxi driven by Martin, although BIU Barnes, according to his confession, did lake -10 cents from the youlh's pockets while he was lying, fatally injured, In the field. The Barnes', father and two sons, came here from Hayti en route to Oklahoma to visit a daughter and sister in trouble there. Frank Barnes waited at a store, operated by a, relative, at the south end of 21st street while his two sons walked to • the business dts-' net and engaged young Martin to drive them to Manila. The bolt which Bill Barnes later used to club Martin with was picked up near the store when Frank joined tlie group as they started west toward Ufanlla. Fled in Stolen Taxi After the fatal beating and knifing of Martin the trio sped westward In their stolen car. until forced to abandon thc machine near Bradford when it .gave out of gas. They were later picked up at the home of a relative, near Bradford. Carried to Little Rock they confessed the slaying. Denver Dudley, district prosecu"- tor, unfolded the story, tisin" a number of witnesses to link de- lolls of the killing together. J. R.
