Disciple of Jack the Ripper Electrocuted

New York, April 18.
Emil Totterman, a Swedish sailor who murdered Sarah Martin in a James Slip hotel in this city last December, was put to death in the electric chair at Sing Sing prison today.

Totterman's crime attracted wide attention at the time it was committed on account of its close resemblance in horrible detail to the noted Jack the Ripper murders in London. The victim was a woman of the streets.
