Marengo, Iowa, Jan. 5. The second trial of Mrs. Sarah Ellen Gallaugher on the charge of perjury in the trial for the murder of her husband June 17, 1902, commenced here today before Judge Ryington, the defense having secured a change of venue from Johnson County. James Gallaugher was murdered while he lay sleeping. Footprints leading to the home of one Charles Halladay were found and the latter placed under arrest. He was convicted of complicity in the murder and given a life sentence. Mrs. Gallaugher, also indicted, testified in her own behalf and acquitted. She was afterward indicted for perjury, but the verdict was set aside by the Supreme Court.
