Luther Robinson

Deputy Constable Luther Robinson was stabbed to death while attempting to arrest several drunk subjects who were causing a disturbance at Powers Station (modern-day Maceo).

As he attempted to place one of the men under arrest another person in the group shot him in the leg. He was then attacked and stabbed several times, including a deep wound in his neck. He died several minutes later.

The two brothers who attacked him were convicted of murder and sentenced to 21 years in prison. They received a second trial in which one of them was convicted again and sentenced to life in prison.
