B EJIJEVE JURY WILL
r" " "acquit murderess.
Owing to Her Being Deformed Pus
tied as to Outcome of Trial
NEW YORK, July 28. The state au
thorities are puzxled aa to a satisfac
tory disposition of the case of Nina,
Danforth, the deformed girl, who killed
A. J. Emery and is now In the Cam
bridge house of correction, says a Bos
ton special to the Press. Attorney
General Parker feels that because of
the pitiable circumstances a Jury would
acquit her. Yet, by 'her own admission
and by the testimony of eye witnesses
she killed Emery aa he stood in the
doorway of his home in South Fnam
lnghain. It Is the fear of having a ver
dict of not guilty which cauKes the at
torney-general so much trouble. He
Is afraid that the traditions of the
Massachusetts courts will be violated
by a return of a verdlqt in direct op
position to the evidence.
The authorities are mid to have at
last reached the conclusion that the
best ending of the case would be an
arrangement wtik-h the state could ac
cept without establishing abad pre
cedent and would let the girl out of
the house of correction under feetraint
or watch which would not be so close
as to threaten her already weak condi
tion of mind. Thi may be aocom-
plfshed by a verdict of manslaughter
with a Hgrht sentence from whkfh will
be taken the time already spent by the
the prisoner in the house of correc
tion. " ' "
