“I find in preparing for the preliminary hearing that the state has no case against Bell for the murder of McAllister,” Shelby Myrick, attorney, stated today.

To Defend Bell
Mr. Myrick has accepted the case and will defend William R. Bell,
who is in jail on a charge of murdering Edward L. McAllister. The dead man was discovered in his home Tuesday of last week. He
had been slain with a hatchet

Myrick says he expects the preliminary hearing will take place within a few days.
