Charged with Murder.
New Hampton, Feb. 5.—Several days ago the body of Dave Connell, a section foreman, was found on the Illinois Central track near Nashua, this county. It was then supposed that he had been struck by a train and killed accidentally. The coroner of Chickasaw county held an inquest and returned a verdict to that effect. The railroad company was not satisfied with the verdict and sent a detective to investigate further. The result is that John Wuestoff and Eugene Fleming, two young men of Nashua, were arrested and are now in jail here charged with murder. They have confessed to robbing the body of about $30, but deny the killing.
