"Joe Doran was sentenced to a term of sixty years in the penitentiary, for murdering his father-in-law, at a place called Lamar. Owing to the man’s laziness and refusal to support his wife and two children, she left him and went to live with her father. The husband being denied the privilege of even seeing the children became angry, purchased a revolver, and deliberately shot down the father and his wife. He was tried and subsequently received the above sentence."
