Holly Griffith Trial Postponed in 1921

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/30/1921.

Griffith Case Continued

The case of the state against W.H. (Holly) Griffith for the murder of Ira Roush has been postponed until the September term of circuit court.  It was understood that the defendant expected to move postponement as this was a special term of court, and trial could not be forced.  Prosecuting Attorney R.L. Hogg consented to the postponement until September.  The summoning of state witnesses for this term would have been needless expense. - Point Pleasant Gazette.
