EXECUTION

Severino Klosowski, otherwise George Chapman, 37, a Russian Pole, described as a licensed victualler, of the Borough, was executed yesterday morning within the walls of Wandsworth Prison for the wilful murder of Maud Eliza Marsh by poisoning her with antimony in October last. Billington was the executioner, and death was instantaneous. At the inquest which was afterwards held by Mr. Troutbeck, Major Knox, the prison governor, said that the convict made no confession. The jury found that Chapman had been duly executed according to law, and a notice to this effect was afterwards posted outside the gaol.
