He was granted 60 days' stay of execution to meet his obligation to the State.
The bond is returnable April 19. How was accused by Flaskamp of having mistreated his daughter, Virginia, aged 12.
His defense was ts unwritten law, and his counsel, Harvey & Baer, pleaded in extenuation that Flaskamp,
with reason temporarily deranged because of being told by his wife that his daughter had been wronged,
was not wholely responsible under the law. The Flaskamp child, shortly after the killing, was examined by a city dispensary physician, who pronounced her physically unharmed.
Experts for the defense testified to the contrary, but the defense obtained an instruction from the court
to the effect that a physical rupture' was not esential to the establishment of an assault charge
if the Jury wns satisfied from the testimony that an attempt was made upon the child.
