From The San Francisco Examiner June 30, 1945

Albert Kovacs was murdered in New Canaan, CT on June 23, 1945. Charged was Imogene Stevens, wife of an Army major. She was charged with shooting Albert Kovacs from point-blank range. She was acquitted which leaves some mystery surrounding the death of Albert Kovacs. Imogene Dumas Stevens died in Sarasota, Florida in 2010 at 89 years old.
