Chicago, Oct. 2, - Charles Miller, aged 41 years, today shot and killed Phoebe Armstrong aged 28, from Morris, Ill., as a result of a fit of jealous anger and then killed himself.
They roomed at the same house, and Miller climbed down the fire escape to the girl’s room and took her life first, then his own.
