Dr. R. M. Elliot was arrested charged with manslaughter in the first degree. About four weeks ago he was called to attend a confinement case at Joseph Larber's sixteen miles northwest of Aberdeen. It is charged that in delivering the woman of the child he dug it out with an iron spoon and fork, killing it. In a few days the mother also died.
