In San Antonio’s sensational “Trial of the Century,” Miss Hedda Burgemeister is found not guilty of the murder of Otto Koehler by a jury in the Thirty-seventh district court. The verdict was returned by the jury shortly after 12 o’clock and Miss Burgemeister was immediately surrounded by friends who showered their congratulations upon her. Mr. Koehler, President and manager of the San Antonio Brewing Association (Pearl Brewery) was killed on Nov. 12, 1914 in the little cottage on Hunstock Avenue that he had given to Miss Burgemeister.
