SAM AGNEW IS DEFENDANT IN DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS
Mary G. Agnew filed suit for divorce from Walter (Sam) Agnew, former local Chevrolet dealer, Monday, in the local circuit court. She asks for an absolute divorce, custody of their five-year-old child and $10 a week for the child's support. Mrs. Agnew has been living in Plainfield recently.
The complaint states that the defendant is guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment in that he became infatuated with another woman about August 12, 1933, and neglected his wife and child, often staying away from home for several days under the pretense that he was on business. The Agnews were married in October, 1928, and separated in May of this year. Agnew at present is working for an Indianapolis firm.
