Alvin Morlock, is charged with the ultimate crime, the crime of murder.
It is the intention of the State to demonstrate, in the course of this trial, that he is guilty and that the degree of his guilt, which it will be your function to fix, demands the ultimate punishment by law.
In other words, we charge him with murder in the first degree.
Murder calculated. Murder premeditated.
Murder ruthlessly and heartlessly committed on the person who had every reason to expect nothing but a cherishing affection from the accused.
