Times (London)
13 January 1899

Central Criminal Court

Before Mr. Justice Darling, the trial of Kate Marshall, 44, on a charge of murdering her sister, Elizabeth Roberts, was concluded. The prisoner gave evidence on her own behalf, denied having stabbed her sister, and alleged that the husband of the deceased had committed the act. In cross examination - after a long argument as to the admissibility of the question - she admitted that she had several times been convicted for stabbing and malicious wounding, but it was always done in self defence. The jury found her guilty, but recommended her to mercy on the ground that the blow was struck when she was in a state of drunken frenzy. The prisoner was sentenced to death.
