The Alleged Manslaughter at Shirebrook

Publication: Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald (Chesterfield, England)
Issue: 5542

In 1900 Rose and her partner, John Hall were charged with manslaughter of their 7 month old son. I have the newspaper article on the court case [reference above] but it was adjourned and i can't find any article of the outcome of the case, tho i guess they got off as they are on the 1901 census together and i was half expecting them to be on the census in jail.
