This is an article that speaks of  Amanda Price  divorcing her husband  Sam B. Price  because of abandonment and failure to provide.  If you notice it is dated just 10 days after Mr. Price murdered Mr. Browne.  Guess since he was sitting in jail he really wasn`t providing for her and he did abandoned her.

Ntoes:  For the whole story, see Kent Brown's obituary and the conviction, parole and pardon of  Lizzie Storms.  So, who is Sam Price? Why would Lizzie agree to help him?  We know that he was about eight years younger than Lizzie.  From evidence of the prison records we know that he did one year in jail from 1880-1881.  He also did the time for the murder of Mr. Browne and was later paroled on October 15, 1918.  However, we see that on February 27, 1919 he went right back to the prison for another crime which he would serve 1-14 years.  We have not yet learned the particulars of this second crime.  It will require more searching to answer all these questions...
