YARBOROUGH MURDER | Memphis, June 22–The Ledger has information concerning the killing of Brad Yarborough, near Covington, Tennessee, last Saturday, by his brother-in-law, William Kinley. It appears that one had sued the other, and they had been to Covington to attend the trial. On the road home, Yarborough, who was on horseback, passed Kinley in a wagon, when the latter drew a revolver and fired at Yarborough, the shot taking effect in his right arm. Yarborough rode some forty yards and fell from his horse dead. When found he had his handkerchief wrapped around his hand as if to stop the hemorrhage. A negro who saw the shooting says Yarborough first struck Kinley, but a lady who witnessed it says he did not. Yarborough was a prominent granger, and his funeral was largely attended.
