Death in the Chocolate Candy Box

As Forrest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will get"  (or similar).   So is genealogy.  Today I was posting information on Aaron Tison, a distant Tyson relative in Bemen County, Georgia, who was born in 1840 and married to Elizabeth Holland,  when I noticed an entry in the notes section.   I looked closer and it said:  "Aaron was accused of killing his father-in-law, B. HOLLAND. Indicted 1867, Mistrial 1868.  He did not kill his father-in-law, but hired someone to do it."
