CLERKENWELL - THE ATTEMPTED WIFE MURDER - Police-Inspector Poule, of the G Division, reported to Mr. Barstow, the magistrate at the Court, on Saturday afternoon, that the woman Sarah Ann Kelly, alleged to have been stabbed in the neck by her husband, James Kelly, at 21 Cottage-Lane, St. Luke's, was in a dying state, almost all hopes having been given up of her recovery. - Mr. Barstow, accompanied by the Inspector and the Chief Clerk, at once drove to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, in order that the injured woman's deposition might be taken down in writing. When the prisoner, James Kelly, (who has only been married to his wife a fortnight) was charged with the attempted murder on Friday, evidence was given by his mother-in-law that in consequence of a quarrel with his wife he stabbed her under the left ear with a pocket knife, inflicting a deep wound. - The prisoner stands remanded till next Friday.
