A chauffeur testifies in the trial of Dr. George A. Fritch, accused of killing Maybelle Millman of Ann Arbor, saying that  Fritch threw three heavy sacks into Ecorse Creek.  

"Have you been killing someone?" the chauffeur asked.

"You are not supposed to know anything," the doctor replied.

"Millman's body was found in three sections in sacks in Ecorse Creek and lower Detroit River early last September. The police decided the body showed evidence of a criminal operation," The Times says.
