January 17, 2014
The Times Observer

This week marks the 60th anniversary of a significant Warren County tragedy. On Jan. 13, 1954, Judge Allison Wade died at the hands of Norman Moon who was angry about an order to pay what he believed to be an exorbitant amount of spousal support. Moon, who was about to be sentenced for noncompliance, pulled a Colt .45 from his waistband. As those in the courtroom scurried away and into whatever hiding place they could find, he approached the bench and fired at Judge Allison Wade. Judge Wade was shot once in the chest, a fatal blow.
