Shoots Ten Year Old Girl In Arm
The Daily Ypsilanti Press published this story on Tuesday, September 12, 1916. Mrs. Mary Segrist was arrested Monday afternoon on complaint of Miss Selita Black, age 10, who charges her with felonious assault. Miss Black stated that Mrs. Segrist shot her in the left arm near the elbow. A petition has been made by Deputy Sheriff Connor to have her examined to test her sanity. The defendant was brought to the jail in an automobile. She yelled on the way and it took three men to get her into the building. She was examined by Doctors Hull and Clark and pronounced mentally unbalanced. They recommended that she be sent to some institution for treatment. She will probably be removed to Pontiac.
