110 Around two o'clock in the morning on 27 May 1854 James Madison Dye was bludgeoned on the head and then shot in the chest while sleeping in bed. His head had been hit with either an axe or a hammer. His second wife, Rebecca Brown Dye, along with David B. Burress, and Stokley P. Rhea were all charged with his murder. Before the trial began the prosecutor declared that he would not be prosecuting Stokley P. Rhea, and Rhea was discharged.
During the trial it was brought to light that James Madison Dye had become quite a wealthy farmer and he had frequent and violent fights with his sons. Some people thought that it was one or some of his sons that wanted their father dead simply for his dower. It was also thought that Rebecca Brown Dye wanted her much older husband dead. She was 38 years younger than James Madison Dye, and there was speculation that she and David B. Burress were in a relationship.
There were 80 to 90 witness interviewed. After the jury had deliberated for over 15 hours, Rebecca Brown Dye was found guilty. She was sentenced to 5 years in the penitentiary. She was pardoned long before completing the 5 years due to good conduct.
David B. Burress was never taken trial. He escaped while awaiting the trial. He soon returned and turned himself in, but once again escaped before the trial began. It was thought that he fled to Indiana, and the authorities went to Indiana, but he had already fled once again. He was never caught.
