The Times (London).
28 March 1895

Before the Recorder

William Grant, 34, was indicted for feloniously wounding Alice Graham, with intent to do her grievous bodily harm.

Mr. Horace Avory prosecuted.

The offence took place in Butler's street, Spitalfields, about 2 o'clock in the morning. Grahan was seriously injured, but the prompt arrival of Police Constable Frazer no doubt prevented other injuries from being inflicted.

A Verdict of Guilty was returned and Mr. Avory said the crime bore a strange resemblance to the Jack the Ripper murders, and the police had turned their attention to the matter without result. The prisoner described himself as a ship's engineer, but it could not be found that he had been in any employment. He had been tarced backwards and forwards between the London and Cork workhouses, and at one time was in an asylum.

The Recorder:- This is a Treasury prosecution, and I am amazed that no indictment was preferred for wounding with intent to murder, as the facts would have amply justified a verdict of guilty for that offence.

Mr. Avory said that the Treasury only appeared in the case after the committal, and counsel was not consulted as to the indictmnent.

The Recorder said the prisoner was lucky in not being indicted for the more serious offence. The prisoner was then sentenced to ten years' penal servitude. The Recorder complimented the officer Frazer.


DINNER TO MEDICAL BARONETS
