Laura McCoy married Monroe Betterton. She died young and he remarried. He murdered his second wife and was hung about July, 1920.

You can find the trial transcript on the web if you google him. Also, check Donna Cooper's website of Barry County newspapers.

Laura was buried at the Bethel Cemetery as Laura McCoy (no married name). Do you suppose he murdered her, too?
