Deputy Marshall was shot and killed while accompanying the sheriff of Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri, to serve a warrant that had been issued on a man in Mitchellville, Iowa. When the officers arrived at the residence of the suspect, the suspect shot Deputy Marshall, who was killed, and the sheriff, who was seriously wounded. The suspect took Deputy Marshall's weapon and fled into a field.

The suspect surrendered himself to the sheriff ten days later. He was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison December 17, 1926. He was paroled in January of 1960.
