Paul Roberts Lodged in Jail

The Gazette
January 8, 1896

Mr. Paul Roberts, who lives near Shiloh, was brought to town Wednesday night and lodged in jail charged with having killed a negro the first part of last week near Junction City. As in every case there are two sides to the statement that comes to us. There was but one shot fired and the ball penetrated the heart of the negro killing him instantly. Roberts claims that the killing was accidentally done. It is very likely he will be given a preliminary hearing before Judge Barksdale either the present of next week.
