On May 21, the Daily Press published the results of the grand jury hearing at Buckingham County’s courthouse. This report came from Dillwyn:

Despite the fact that he pleaded “not guilty” when he was arraigned a few days ago on the charge of murdering his rival in [love], Meade Hanes, 16 years old, it is reported here today that the defense in the case of Mott Robertson Glover, the slayer, will be jealous insanity and every effort will be made by the young man’s lawyers to have alienists examine him before the trial begins.

Glover is reported to have resorted to numerous queer acts since he has been in jail. He seems to realize the enormity of his crime. He is a son of Charles L. Glover, a widely known citizen of the county and is about 30 years old.

Just whether Glover is feigning insanity at present is not yet known. His case is to be called for trial June 19, when it is expected one of the greatest court battles in recent years in Buckingham in behalf of the slayer will begin, as an array of the best legal talent in the state will be here at that time.
