a special grand jury session next week as a result of recommendations hy a coroners jury investigating the fatal shooting of Mrs Lillian DeKing The jury composed of six Aurora business men found the slaying of Mrs DeKing during a county dry raid at her home March 25 was un necessary It recommended that the grand jury inquire into all con ditions surrounding the raid that led to the shooting The verdict held that Deputy Sheriff Roy Smith who fired the shot that killed Mrs DeKing be held on a charge of manslaughter Claims False Affidavit We believe from the evidence the verdict continued that

to testify concerning the shooting having been knocked un conscious by a blow from the depu tys clubbed gun a few seconds be fore Saw No Search Warrant The elder DeKing testified that no search warrant was produced at either of the two visits made by the raiders the night of March 25 However William Hale Tread well one of the deputies testified that he had a warrant and that when he started to draw it from his pocket at the DeKing home DeKing said Put that back In your pocket or Ill blow your head off Treadwell also testified that some wine and four or five pints of alco hol were found at the DeKing home Philip Johnson the man who made the buy on which the search warrant was based was unable to state from whom he bought the pint of moonshine but he testified that it was not from a
