Jeptha D. WEST charged with trying to kill his wife (1902)

As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 48 (November 1902 - December 1903), in November 1902 Jeptha D. West was charged with assault and battery with intent to kill his wife Sarah West (case #4309). The judge released him from county jail on his own recognizance, provided he sign an affidavit agreeing to leave the state of Indiana and stay away from the state so long as his wife lived, and to abstain from drinking intoxicating liquor.
