Rum ” got blame for shooting “

SYDNEY, Wednesday:

John Henry Fishburn had said too much rum made him shoot a sleeping man at Chester Hill, Constable A. A. Pry ( nswpf # 5826 ), told the Central Court today.

Pry said Fishburn admitted that he fired two shots at John Straughen, but both missed, so he crept closer, shot Straughen in the back, and stole £ 13/10/ from him.

Fishburn, 34, laborer, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty to shooting with intent to murder.

He was committed for trial on March 4, 1957, and refused ball.

Constable Pry said that Fishburn claimed he did not mean to hurt Straughen.

Dr. M, J. Tarlington, of St. Vincent’s Hospital, said a metallic body was lodged in Straughen‘s spine.

He would never walk properly again, but might, be able to get around on crutches.
