WIFE TELLS OF SLAYING EVENTS

Walker Man Shot in Car At Winthrop

Husband Kills Former Mate of his Wife, Surrenders

WINTHROP -- Gordon Merritt, 32, of Walker was shot and killed by his former wife's husband, Charles Tudor, 27, of Winthrop, about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, Buchanan County Sheriff Emory Hart said.

Hart said Merritt, a purple Heart veteran of World War II, was shot between the eyes while sitting with Mrs. Tudor in a car in front of the Tudor residence on highway 20 here.

Mrs. Tudor's Account.

Mrs. Tudor was taken to Cedar Rapids early Wednesday by a brother, Floyd Dye, and was in a state near collapse at his home at 2018 Third street SW.

She told a Gazette reporter that she and Merritt drove to Cedar Rapids Tuesday afternoon to see about income tax deductions for their three children. Enroute home they had a flat tire at Marion, stopped at Waubeck to visit Merritt's uncle and ate dinner in a Central City cafe.

She said she didn't see her husband at the time of the shooting until he opened the door on her side of the car.

Sheriff Hart said Tudor fired once through the door with a .22 caliber target pistol.

Goes to Neighbor.

Tudor then went to the home of a neighbor, Lorus Heffernan to call the sheriff.

Buchanan County Attorney William G. Klotzbach said Wednesday afternoon that Tudor was talking to an attorney at the Buchanan county jail. Klotzbach said he would not file a charge until after Tudor was through conferring with the attorney.

Tudor told the sheriff that when Merritt drove up in front of the house he decided to "scare him away: with the pistol. The gun fires soft hollow-node bullets.

Marie Tudor, a slim attractive 28-year-old brunette, was being cared for at her brother's home by her mother, Mrs. Ruth Dye, 844 Seventh avenue SE.

Apparently numbed by the shock of her former husband's death, she was resting on the sofa in her brother's house while her three sons -- Gordon, 11, and Raymond and Ronald, 9 -- played outdoors.

Scarcely Spoken

Mrs. Dye said she first knew of the shooting about 6 o'clock when Mr. Dye and Marie drove up to her home. Floyd took his sister and her three children to Cedar Rapids after being summoned to Winthrop sometime during the night.

She said Marie has scarcely spoken to her since that time.

In a brief and broken explanation of what happened prior to the shooting, Mrs. Tudor said she and Merritt went to Cedar Rapids sometime Tuesday afternoon to see about income tax papers because he was claiming the children as dependents.

After that, she said, they drove to Marion, where they had a flat tire.

After getting the tire fixed, they went to Waubeek where they visited for some time with an uncle of Merritt's. Bill Brunen. They stopped in a Central City cafe to eat supper before going home, she said.

Christmas Visit.

Merritt had not been to the Tudor home in Winthrop previously except on Christmas eve when he made a brief visit, Mrs. Tudor said. At that time he came to see the children, but wouldn't come in the house, she said.

She said she didn't think her husband was jealous of Merritt and that he had no objection to her ex-husband's visiting the children No arrangements for visits had been made, she said.

Mrs. Tudor's mother said Marie and her husband were happy together and that she knew of no difficulty between them. She described Tudor as the "sweetest, kindest person I ever knew."

Mrs. Tudor's father, William Dye, lives in Center Point. Her parents are divorced. Mrs. Tudor lived in Cedar Point for a time after her divorce from Merritt.

The Tudors had lived in Winthrop since their marriage in July last year.

Merritts Wed in 1943.

Marie and Gordon Merritt, who were married Jan. 26, 1943, in Cedar Rapids, were divorced on Aug. 31, 1954. Marie was the plaintiff in the divorce case, claiming cruel and inhuman treatment. She was awarded custody of their three children.

Prior to their divorce, the Merritts lived in Walker where Merritt was employed as a carpenter and Mrs. Merritt was employed in a tavern.

At the same time, Charles Tudor worked in the Henry Smith garage at Walker.

Following her divorce, Marie Merritt moved to Center point where she was employed at the Point Inn. Merritt went to Center Point and then to Coggon. He later returned to Walker.

Tudor Also Divorced.

Charles Tudor, who is employed by the John Deere Company in Waterloo, was first married Sept. 1, 1951, in Buchanan county. A divorce decree was granted Jan. 5, 1954. He had one daughter by his first marriage who is now living with her mother in California.

Tudor was the plaintiff in his divorce case and charged cruel and inhuman treatment.

Tudor is the son of Mrs. Frank Ball of Bremer.

Merritt was born Aug. 26, 1923, in Marion, the son of Andrew and Eleanor Merritt, now of Walker.

During World war II he served with the first marine division in the Pacific and was awarded a Purple Heart medal.

In addition to his parents and three sons, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. W. T. Henderson, Coggon, and Mrs. Homer Krichner, Chicago, and three brothers, Harold, Paul and James, all of Walker.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in the United church, Walker. Burial will be in the Walker cemetery. Friends may call at the Sarchett-Murdoch funeral home, Walker, after noon Thursday.


NOTE: The Gazette printed a correction in an article January 5, 1956:

"The Gazette erroneously reported that she [Mrs. Tudor] was employed by the Point Inn while in Center Point. She was never employed there."

Cause of death: at Winthrop, Buchanan Co., IA, Shot by the jealous second husband of his wife, Charles Tudor. He was buried in January 1956 at Walker Cemetery, Walker, Linn Co., IA, Findagrave #117431929.
