A News special from Iliff, Logan county, Friday night says: Mrs. Henry Tucker, a bride of two months, was shot and killed and her husband shot in the face tonight by Karl Tscrarch, a Russian, who suspected that they were robbers. Grief-stricken when he ascertained the mistake he had made, Tscbarch fled. Cowboys are now searching for him. His wife believes that he has gone into Sterling to give himself up. Tucker had been putting up hay on the Tobin ranch, owned by Mrs. M. C. Herrington of Denver. Needing another man, he went with his wife to the Russian's shanty on the Edward Bennett ranch, shortly after sunset tonight. They rapped on the door. Tscharch asked who was there. Apparently he did not hear their reply, for he threw open the door of his shanty and emptied both barrels of his shotgun. Mrs. Tucker's head was blown off. Scattering shot wounded Tucker. Tscharch, when he found what he had done, left his wife and children in the shanty and hurried to the Powell and Dillon ranch. There he explained to Lee Koontz and John McCarthy that he had $ 600 in cash in his shanty and mistook the Tuckers for robbers.
In 1910 Iliff, William H. Tucker is a mason, widowed, 25, born in Illinois.
Tscharch asked the men to go back with him. On the road to the shanty they met Mrs. Tscharch and her four children. Tscharch stopped with them while Koontz and McCarthy went on to the shanty. While they were gone Tscharch disappeared . His wife , in broken English , said that he had gone into Sterling to surrender , but the cowboys , when they heard of the killing , started in pursuit of the Russian . Tucker was found by Kooatz and Mc Carthy kneeling by the body of his wife , unmindful of his own wounds. Mrs. Turcker was the daughter of John Hammell of Sterling. Tscharch is a renter on the Bennett ranch . He had sold his beet crop and other products for $ 600 in cash , which he kept in the shanty in which he lived . He has been fearful for some weeks that it was known that he had the money and that he would be robbed .
