Who Killed Betty Gail Brown?

Robert G. Lawson

University Press of Kentucky

On the basis of a sworn affidavit from Captain Cravens showing reasonable grounds for believing that Alex Arnold had murdered Betty Gail Brown, Judge Richard P. Moloney of Lexington’s Police Court issued a warrant for Arnold’s arrest that included an order that arresting officers present him to a judge. Judge Moloney asked Amos Eblen, one Lexington’s of the most experienced and highly respected attorneys, to represent Arnold as he had no money for legal counsel. Eblen brought on Robert Lawson as co-counsel for the case, and they began interviewing him on January 25, 1965 after his incarceration to prepare for Arnold’s trial. The chapter also discusses Arnold’s background, the preliminary hearing, and Arnold’s indictment for murder.
