FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8. 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KEWS PAGE THREE State Shows Gory Color Slides Of Dr. Sam's Murdered Wife CLEVELAND (AP) — Spine-tingling photographs of the battered head of a slain woman. The shaking shoulders of her husband, silhouetted against a window in a darkened courtroom. Jurors unnerved by the display of gore and emotion . This was the setting yesterday as the state showed vivid, colored slide films in the opening phase of'its case against osteopath Samuel H. Sheppard. The films showed the red- rimmed gashes left by blows which shattered the skull of pregnant Marilyn Sheppard. 31, and left her lifeless in her bed last July *• There were seven in .all. As they were shown by Deputy Coroner Lester Adelson, the state's first witness, Sheppard slowly lost his composure and gave way to racking, silent sobs. Sheppard did not see the photographs. He chose to sit behind the screen set up in the courtroom. But he could hear Adehson as the coroner's aide described some of the 35 injuries he said he found on the body. At first, the 30-year-old defendant sat stiff and erect, his figure outlined against the dreary half-light which crept past, closed Venetian blind, 1 ;. Soon, his head plunged to Viis hands and his shoulders shook with emotion. All Seven Shown Finally, all of the seven photographs werp shown. The lights were turned on again. Soon the state had finished its questioning of Adelson, and the court was recessed. Sheppard. led back to his cell by a deputy sheriff, waved to his brother, Dr. Stephen A. Sheppard, at the side of the courtroom and called. "See you." Then he strode out of-the room, beyond the stares of the curious. The state, in its opening slue ment yesterday, claimed ManI n Sheppard was killed after she and Sheppard quarreled over the osteopath's activities with other women, including lissome Susan Hayes. The defense declared Sheppard was a man who "loved Marilyn Sheppard with great tenderness" and was not a man who could kill.
