Plaintiffs in error, along with Sam Horn, Henry Horn and Mrs. Henry Horn, are accused of shooting Victor Widener to death. Paul, Sam, and Curtis Horn are the sons of Henry and Nannie Horn. It appears that the victim lived on Horn's land and had a relationship with Elise Horn, daughter of Henry and Nannie. The victim had a baby with Elise (5 years before his death) while married to another woman, causing tension between the parties.
