NOThWES I AihtA.'«t*i f*»«H«ir»i*, A. Aunt On Trial In Infant Poisoning; Two Testify Wetumka, Al».-(#)-Th« How-' moving day-old murder trial of Mn. Earle Dennison. :!, charged with poisoning her infant' niece, proceeded methodically today with only two witnesses heard from thus far. Court was called .'or 9 a. m. (CST) after an overnight recess. The trial began yesterday morning. Seven hours was spent in qualifying and striking a jury. The former operating room nurse at Wetumka General Hospital is charged with giving fatal doses of arsenic to two small nieces--one of them nearly three years ago and the other last May 1. She is being tried now only for the death of the latter child, cur- Icy-haired Shirley Diann Weldon, iged two. Whether the widow will be prosecuted also for the poisoning of Shirley's sister, Polly Ann, will depend on the outcome of her first trial. Polly was two years old when she died. Parenti Jellify ' The parents, Mr. and Mrs: O. G. Weldon of rural Claud commu- · nity near Wetumka, were the only witnesses heard yesterday. Both testified that Shirley Diann became violently ill after she drank U.u soft drinks given her by the visiting aunt. Mrs. Weldon told the Jury the middle-aged nurse tried to keep her from taking the stricken child to a doctor but finally agreed and went along herself when the mother insisted. Sheriff Lester Holly has said the aunt admitted giving arsenic to Shirley Diann, but denied intentionally poisoning the first child.
