New Albany Daily Ledger 8 Jan 1864 p2: A man whose name, we believe, was John Nagel, (an Irishman), died in this place on Monday evening last, as was supposed, from the effects of a blow which he had received on the head a few days previous. Coroner Hook held an inquest over the body on the following morning, and Wm. Hughes (late of the 14th Indiana regiment), was arrested, under charge of having struck the blow. No satisfactory evidence was adduced to prove the guilt or innocence of the of the accused, and the further examination of the case was postponed till the 13th instant.—Hughes giving bail for his appearance at that time. — Bloomington Republican.
