Abstract

The other brothers were able to identify some of the items stolen at the time of Martin's murder that authorities had found in Conrad's possession. Conrad Müller was convicted of the robbery/murder and was sentenced to have his limbs broken with the wheel starting from the bottom and working up the body until he died of shock.
