DR. MOELLER FOUND GUILTY AS CHARGED
The Jury Returned a Verdict After Forty-Eight Hours Deliberation
SENTENCED TO TEN YEARS IN THE STATE PENITENTIARY
Minot, N.D., March 1.—The jury in the case of the state against Dr. Thor Moeller who is charged with second degree murder in having caused the death of Gina Lien by means of a criminal operation last October, brought in a verdict of guilty as charged in the information yesterday at 3:30 o'clock after having had the case under consideration since Friday evening. Judge Goss immediately sentenced the defendant to ten years in the state penitentiary. A motion for a new trial will at once be made and the case will be fought to the bitter end.
The verdict will have some bearing on the case of L.W. Dale, who is charged with the same offense. It is alleged that he was responsible for the condition of the unfortunate girl and that he procured the services of Dr. Moeller at the time the alleged criminal operation was performed.
