By May 14, 1913, Richmond’s Times-Dispatch reported news of the upcoming trial of Mott Glover. This headline introduced a short article:


Defense Probably Will Attempt to Show Hanes’s Slayer Insane at the Time of Shooting.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch]

Buckingham, Va. , May 13. — The case against Mott Glover, charged with killing young Meade Hanes on May 5, was called in the Circuit Court here to-day, and June 19 was set for the time of the trial, at which time Judge Hundley will hold a special term of the Circuit Court here.

Congressman Flood and Senator Gayle will appear for the defense, and Commonwealth’s Attorney E. W. Hubard will be assisted in prosecution by Aubrey E. Stroud. It was clear from what was said in court that the defense will try to prove that Mott Glover was insane at the time of the shooting. Congressman Flood and Aubrey E. Stroud were both here to-day.

Judge Hundley, Congressman Flood, Commonwealth’s Attorney E. W. Hubbard, and Aubrey E. Stroud are familiar names at Slate River Ramblings.
