Two Others Sentenced In Hancock County Court.


Glendale Trio Admit Robbing Chester Home.

Five men, three of them from Glendale, near Newell, were sentenced to on-year terms in the state penitentiary at Moundsville and a Weirton boy was given seven years in the reformatory at Pruntytown by Judge J. Harold Brennan Wednesday afternoon in the closing session of the November term of the circuit court at New Cumberland.

The Glendale men were Pearl Howell, Joseph McGeorge and Darrell Walker. Howell was indicted jointly with McGeorge on a charge of robbing the home of William McDonald at Chester of articles valued at $72. Howell was also charged jointly with Walker in breaking and entering a building owned by Mrs. William Owens of Chester.

Howell was given a one-year sentence on each charge, the terms to run concurrently, and McGeorge and Walker were given one-year terms each. They pleaded guilty earlier that term. Clyde Howell, brother of Pearl, who was indicted on a charge of receiving stolen goods, has not been apprehended.

Ralph Pulice and Andrew Dorn..(?).. of Weirton, who were found guilty of a charge of breaking and entering the Alder department store at Weirton, were sentenced to one year each.

A 14-year old Weirton Negro, was sentenced to the reformatory until he is 21, after pleading guilty to breaking and entering the Bendovid and Capian [hard to read, might be Captan] store at Weirton.

The case of L.L. Chambers of Holidays Cove, charged with shooting with intent to kill, was continued until the next term on a notion of the defense attorneys.
