Committed Without Bail.

Rockdale, Tex., Oct. 12. -- In the case of the killing of E.B. Shipman, an account of which was published in The News of the 10th instant, R.N. Penny, who was charged with the killing, was committed to jail without bail. It was developed in the examining trial that there had been bad blood between the parties since the father of the murdered man was accidentally killed by Tom Penny, a brother of the man charged with this murder, although E.B. Shipman was the father-in-law of his slayer, Penny having married his daughter about a year ago.
