PLEA FOR AGGIE MYERS.
Sick Pardon Is Asked for Kansas City Woman Who Slew Her Husband.
JEFFERSON CITY, May 3 -- Another pleas for a "sick pardon" or parole for Mrs. Aggie Myers was made to Governor Major today by Judge W. E. Fowler of Excelsior Springs. Fowler pointed out to the governor that the woman is in failing health and that further confinement in the prison will shorten her life. The governor took no action on the application today, but told Judge Fowler he would consider it carefully.
Mrs. Myers has been confined in the prison a little more than eleven years. She came here under a life sentence on April 10, 1905. She is of frail physique and was in ill health when she arrived at the prison.
Judge Fowler defended Mrs. Myers at her trial and was largely instrumental in securing from Governor Folk a commutation of the sentence from death to life imprisonment.
Mrs. Myers and Frank Hottman killed Clarence Myers, the husband of the woman, in a most brutal manner at the Myers home in Kansas City. They were both sentenced to be hanged. Hottman is in good health.
