1907 George Huxham

sentenced to death for the murder of  72 year old Hannah Williams, through largely circumstantial evidence. Hannah had been subject to an attack, and suffered head and neck wounds, as well as 9 broken ribs Huxham had been to the house earlier with Hannah’s 27 year old daughter, and had left, and arranged to meet the daughter at 7.00p.m., although she instead went for a drink with another man. Several witnesses identified Huxham, and the jury recommended mercy, and sentence was commuted.
