Evening Independent (Newspaper) - November 10, 1909, Massillon, Ohio THE EVENING INDEPENDENT LAST XXII No 166 MASSILLON OHIO WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 10 1909 PRICE ONE CENT mm TIL BLOCKED TH Delay Grows Out of a Legal Dispute WANTS DEFENDANT ON STAND an indictment charging the embezzle ment of of county funds while treasurer of Stark county prob ably will begin Monday afternoon November 29 It has not been defi nitely determined whether Judge Harter will again preside or whether Judge Hole will hear the case At an informal conference of at torneys it was practically agreed it is stated to continue the case over next week A special venire of new jurors will be necessary because the present venire was exhausted at thj first trial This will require several days to arrange and the continuance would also give an intermission of one week following the end of the Panella case CONCERT Appreciative Audience at the Presbyterian Church GARFIELD CLUB TO FEAST Counsel for Defense Claims That Mrs Panella Cannot be Put on Stand as State Witness and That Such Action Involves Reopening of Case Special to The Independent Canton Nov rebuttal tes timony of the state in the trial of Louisa Panella charged with second degree murder in the killing of her husband Tony Panella and Clara Pizzani was blocked at the very be ginning of court Wednesday morning and the forenoon passed without the examiation of a single witness The delay grew out of a legal point raised by counsel for the defendant in an ob jection to the states recalling Mrs Panella to the stand to give further testimony as lo her visit to the scene of the tragedy on Sunday night Aui gust 1 or probably fourteen hours af ter the murders and her alleged de tailing of the crime then to officers Counsel for the defendant announ ced when court opened that they rested ProsecutorKrichbaumimme diately requested thai Mrs Panella take the stand for crossexamination This caused both Judge Craine and Luther day for Mrs Panella to streiir uously object They claimed that tho state could not put the defendant on the stand as its witness and that the fact that the defense had rested precluded a further crossexamina tion Judge Craine said itwould ba a reopening of the defense and that while the court might permit thestate n to reopen its case in chief the stat utes did any authorityJbr reopening the defense by the states attorneys Prosecutor Krichbauia said that he wished to attack thecredibility of Mrs Panellas testimony concerning the visit with other witnesses who would testify that at that time she re called every detail of the crime which she stated on the stand as a selfserr ing declaration to have been a blank and a dream He said that she hat reenacted the tragedy and showed the officers how it was committed Chief of Police H W Smith and De tective Ed B Bour had been subpoe naed to testify concerning the visi of Mrs Panella to the house on night of the day of the crime Judge Ambler said that he desired the state to show some authority to substantiate its right to reopeu the defendants case before he would feel like holding so It is a question of compelling the defense to reopen its case said the court We contend that it is within the discretion of the court to determine whether the defendant would be pre judiced by the reopening of the de fense said the prosecutor have sufficiently laid the foundation for the testimony It is not necessary to show the exact placeand time to prove a cpntradiction We contend we have the right to introduce testi mony that controverts what she claims in showing sanity or insanity We contend that the statute does not permit the reopening of the de fense by the state said Judge Craine In the regular crossexamination of Mrs Panella the word there was used in reference to the place where the crime was committed and her visit in company with the officers This it is claimed by the defense was not sufficiently specific as a founda tion for contradiction Mrs Panella had testified that she went there for herclothing but did not remember REMEMBERS WHEN William Maxheimer Recalls Adam Poes Funeral THE PROGRAMME PLEASED ALL OCCURRED SIXTYNINE YEARS AGO He Has Set at Rest

that there will be some opposition to this on tlio part of some of ho people liv ing In those districts but it was thought by those who Introduced llio subject that the majority would be in favor of it as the benefits lo accrue from annexation would largely offset any features which might bo objected to and this is certainly an opportune time to take it up because if anything is done in the
