Middletown, Conn., Dec. 22.–The defense in the Hough murder trial attacked to-day May Smith by producing several witnesses to show that she had acted imprudently in being out night after night for long rides with Hough.
Some witnesses testified to seeing Hough hug her on the street. The testimony substantiated some of Hough’s stories told on the witness stand on Thursday.
Owing to the absence of witnesses for the defense an early adjournment was taken until Tuesday. The defense expects to conclude on Thursday.
