Lansing, Marca 29.- The Browne mnrder case, on trial in the Ingham circuit court, will go to the jury today. The defendant was on the witness stand in his own behalf Wednesday and related the story ot' the events leading up to the shooting of Montgomery Hendershott on the 2d of last September. He testified that during the scuffle with Hendershott the revolver vvhich he ha( drawn must have been discharged b the latter's attempt to wrest it away, and that he did not know exactly when the weapon was discharged. Durine the struggle, he said, Hendershott all at once ceased struggling and went out of the door, where he feil down. Asked what became of the revolver with which the shooting was done, Browne said he didn't know. He was under the impression that he threw it out of the window, but it was merely a vague and indistinct recollection.
