The Times (London)
19 March 1891

(Before MR.. SOMES) Edwin Colocitt, 26, who was found guilty last sessions of stabbing young women in the streets of Lambeth and Clapham, was brought up for sentence. Dr. Gilbert, of Holloway Prison, said he had examined the prisoner, and found him to be of very weak intellect, but did not consider him insane. Mr. Lowe, who appeared for the prisoner, referred to a case, now being investigated, in which another person was charged with the commission of exactly similar offenses in the same neighborhood; and in view of the fact that the defence of the prisoner at his trial was that a mistake had been made as to his identity, he asked the Court to postpone sentence until the result of those proceedings was known. Mr. Somes accordingly granted a further postponement.
