William Munchuk was committed for trial at the fall session of the Supreme Court by Magistrate James Campbell, St. Catharines, on Monday, on charges of murdering John Seabright and his wife, Amy Seabright. Mrs. Munchuk was remanded until Friday. No decision regarding the committal of his wife, Annie Munchuk, was given by Magistrate Campbell. Herman H. Rogers, defense counsel, asked permission to prepare a more extended brief for his argument in the case of Mrs. Munchuk, who is charged only with the murder of John Seabright. Asking Mrs. Munchuk be not committed, Mr. Rogers said only one witness, Mrs. Lily Lewis, daughter of the slain Seabright couple, had given any evidence concerning Mrs. Munchuk. Mrs. Lewis testified she saw Mrs. Munchuk strike her father with a baseball bat after he had been struck by Munchuk with an axe. Two witnesses who watched the altercation from across the street denied Mrs. Munchuk struck Seabright and one said she saw Mrs. Munchuk trying to pull her husband away from the Seabrights after he had struck the first blow. Mr. and Mrs. Seabright died as the result of wounds allegedly received in a dispute over a line fence between their property and that of the Munchuks on June 8.
