Then a day or two later went to Mt. Vernon and were married and went to Vinita to visit Betterton's family. While at the home of one of his son's without any warning whatever, Betterton place himself in a room of the home where he could safeguard any attempt at escape and when his wife entered the room began shooting. Three shots were fired, one taking effect in an arm, one entered a lung and the third shot which penetrated the heart caused instant death. R. W.
