Manlz, was jailed Monday afternoon, accused of killing Mrs. Lorena Thompson, 38, her next door neighbor. "With malice aforethought, by pounding and beating her head against the was the wording of Ihe formal charge against Ihe Negro wom- an filed in the office of Justice of the Peace Alfred C. Baass. Police Lt. Robert H. Winley said Mrs. Jackson had admitled the act in a statement, and that statements had been taken from several witnesses. Bond was set at Mrs Jackson vyas still in jail late Monday night. Airs. Thompson died at a.m.; last Tuesday in a local hospital, less than 12 hours after, having been admitted foi treatment of a head injury. Herman Gadsden, also of 202V4 S. Mantz St. where Mrs. Thompson lived, had told po- lice that the woman became ill May 17 and was walking around in a stupor. He said he found her unconscious the next day. Investigation into the circum- stances surrounding Ihe head injury finally led to Mrs. Jack- son's arrest on the charge of murder. Winley said that the two women had been involved in a fight about 2 a.m. May 10, at the site of file homes. At the lime, he said, there was no report made to police, and no call for medical aid to treat Mrs. Thompson. Mrs. Thompson had not been under a physician's care until she was brought unconscious to the hospital last Tuesday afternoon. Police were called after hos- pital officials could find out few of the circumstances which resulted in the head injury to Mrs. Thompson. After her death, Baass was. called to ren- der a Verdict. Medical opinions indicated, Baass said Monday, night, that Ihe type of head injury suffered by Mrs, Thompson was the type more often suffered in a fall rather than from a blow.

Liendo was hit by the bottle following an argument in the 400 block of W. Main Saturday. He died late that night in a San Anlonip hospital. Clark said he has not re- ceived a report on Ihe autopsy thai was performed in .San An- tonio. He said it would be later Ihis week before he receives reporls on the tests. lie detector Clark, who reported the in- vesligalion has not been com- pleted, said charges will prob- ably be filed Tuesday.

However, he withheld his ver- dict as police detectives con- tinued their investigation inlo the case. After Mrs. Jackson's arrest Monday, his verdict in- dicated that death was due to injuries sustained in an alter- cation wilh Mrs. Betty Lou Jackson, under circumstances rendering Mrs. Betty Lou Jack- son chargeable with murder." Mrs. Thompson was first iden- tified as Retta Boday, a name which she apparently used as something of a nickname, Baass said, A son notified Baass of her correct name. Winley indicated that Mrs. Jackson had previously been in city jail, but as far as is known, had never been arrested for a felony. Mrs. Jackson was arrested at her home early Monday. She laler talked wilh her husband al Ihe city jail, and gave a slalemcnl to detectives. The murder charge was acceptcc by County Ally.
