The Murder of Lucinda Davis Coons & her daughter Nellie

In the morning of May 11, 1892 William Coons went out of town leaving his wife Lucinda ,10 year old daughter Nellie and 16 year old nephew James Dooley at home. When came home several hours later, he found his wife and daughter murdered.
James was working for his Aunt and uncle as a farm hand. After William left the house, Lucinda scolded James for neglecting their cattle and allowing them to get into a neighbors field.This made James angry. At some point during the morning he had gone into town and purchased a revolver. When Lucinda scolded him repeatedly over and over he took a padlock he had in his pocket and hit Lucinda on the head with it twice. This knocked her down where they struggled for a time and he then shot her. Nellie was out in the barn and came running in. As she came in James hit her on the head with the padlock knocking her down and then shooting her in the forehead.  He layed the bodies in the bed and then took some clothes and a team of horses and buggy and drove away. He was caught the next day a few miles away at the home of another relative where he was arrested and sentenced to death for first degree murder. There was also some speculation that he may have tried to sexually assault his Aunt and Cousin, but this was not proven. He was taken to the Iowa State Penitentiary where he was imprisoned until October 19, 1894 when he was executed by hanging. He was 18 years old at the time of his execution making him the youngest person to be executed at the prison and he was also the first person to be executed at the new prison.
