Pennsylvania Husband-Beater Mrs. Meyers & Her “Human Target” - 1932


FULL TEXT: “Evidently she didn’t like you very well,” Judge Sylvester J. Snee remarked yesterday after John A. Meyers, 34, of Munhall [Pennsylvania], had described how his wife, Mary, hit him on the head with a bottle, threw books and other things at him, threatened to shoot him on several occasions and called him uncomplimentary names.

Meyers said, “She loved me like snakes.”

Judge Snee, agreeing, granted him a divorce.
