Minot, N.D., Sept. 14.—Hans Thorpe suffered the death penalty here this morning for the brutal murder of his young wife. The execution was witnessed by a large crowd of people.
He blamed a number of people for his conviction and announced hatred for some whom he thought responsible for the trouble between him and his wife. He said he had a fair trial and hanging was a just penalty. He promised his enemies that he would haunt them after death.
