Story taken from findagrave.com:
On Microfilm from the Barbourville Advocate:
MOTHER OF SIX CHILDREN FATALLY SHOT BY HUSBAND
April 07, 1931
Allan Messer fatally shot his thirty year old wife Thursday at their home on Stinking Creek.
Mrs. B. P. Walker, sheriff, was notified of the tragedy and deputies George Perry and R. C. Partin were given a warrant to arrest Messer. After making the arrest, the officers were walking some distance from the house with their captive, when Mr. Partin noticed the ten and twelve year old Messer boys had their guns drawn. One child had a pistol and the other had a high-powered rifle. Partin went back to where the boys were and took the guns away from them. The officers had previously searched the house for guns and were unable to find any. There were five cartridges in each of the guns. Messer was lodged in jail to await examining trial.
Surviving Mrs. Messer are six children ranging in ages from infancy to twelve years old.
An examining trial was held Tuesday and Messer was held without bond.

Ancestors say that she was in their family home for fourteen days before the police finally found her there dead. The death date on the death certificate and the date of Mr. Messer's arrest in the paper, on the 7th of April put that at 12 days.

Also of interest: Ancestors say Mr. Messer led police to 3 more bodies buried behind the family home, men he'd shot and buried.
