Ell Mix at her trial si,oui?*, shave been
excluded, (?n this ground it finds error
in the woman's conviction of murder [n
the first des/ree, ordering a compWc
? ?ourt review of the case.
Two features have marked the Wake
fi< l?i affair. < 'ne is the utter callous?
ness of the murder and the other Is the
extraordinary s'fforts that have been
made ts? save the vornan from hanging.
Tn July 1918, Mrs. Wakefleld, daugh?
ter of a Middlebury OOUph and wife of
a Bristol farmhand, reported the sP-=
nppearance of her husband. His body
was found In the woods In Cheshire
County He had been shot, strangled
and stabbed to death, a cord was
clumsily attached to th<* neck, to give
the enyo an appearance of suicide.
Th>> authorities questioned Mrs.
Wakefleld. Bho confessed thai she and
James Plew, a farmer with Whom sil?
whs Infatuated had plotted Wake
fleld'fl death. Bhe said ?Plew told her
I ? choked Wakefleld, daaed him with
chloroform led him into the w.Is and
there killed i In?.
Mrs. Wakefleld was locked up and
her three pmal! children turned over to
her parents. Hhe was put on trial and

The idea of hanging the young
mother of three children stirred thou?
sands of ?dlizens to protest. The Gov?
ernor was importune?! to stnv the pX.
ecutlon, hut he declined. Hundreds of
suffragists circulated petitiona
Mayor Prank J. Rice of New Ha\cn
was one sif tiie petition signers, Bsv?
eral noted women, despairing of saving
the mother, began plans for the cars
;md educatkm of her children.
Hops was ri'vived last November,
when Thomas P. Devine, Mra Wake
fleld's lawyer, appealed t?i the Buprems
Court of Errors, naming nineteen rea?
sons why his client should gel a new
The appeal acted ai a ?stay o? execu?
