imprecation, the text of which was
lost in the excitement that prevailed,
as counsel for both State and defense
sought to make capital out of the re
marks passed between the accused
and his sister-in-law.
The phrase, "He should have vom
ited blood,” is a literal translation of
the woman's remarks, but in effect
it was a curse hurled at Ceceriello
because he was not dead just as her
Frank M. McDermit, counsel for
Ceceriello, has been muklng a per
sistent effort to connect the name of
John Viola, who on the same morn
ing that the body of Mrs. Ceceriellp
was found cut and hacked almost to
pieces in a vacant lot In Cheater ave
nue, Bloomfield, was found in Bloom
lleld badly cut on the head and body,
with wounds that apparently were in
flicted with a hatchet.
Vloia was removed to St. Michael's
Hospital, this city, and shortly after
being received there committed sui
cide by jumping from a second-story
From Mrs. Ferrara Mr. McDermit
attempted to obtain today state
ments that Viola had been an ac
cepted suitor of her sister before her
marriage to Ceceriello, and that her
parents and relatives were angry
with her when she married Ceceriello
instead of Viola.
A prompt objection on the part of
Sir. Mott resulted in the testimony
concerning Vtola being expunged
from the records. A similar fate has
met every effort so far of McPermlt’s
to get Viola’s name Into the case.
Testimony leading up to the pro
duction of the bloody Imprint of a
linger tip found on the handle of the |
hatchet, with which It is alleged Mrs.
Alvira Ceeerlello was murdered on
May 80 last, took up the morning;
hearing of the second day of the trial ;
of Angelo Ceeerlello, the husband,
who s on trial In the Court of Oyer
and Terminer before Judge William
P. Martin, charged with murder.
The hatchet Itself was placed In eY- \
idenco late yesterday afternoon, but
the part of the handle which, It is al
leged, contains the fateful finger print I
Is carefully carried with paper wrap
ping to protect the finger print from
being murred by handling.
This covering has not yet been re
moved and will not be until E. H.
.Schwarts. Bertlllon expert at police
headquarters, takes the witness stand
to tell of the resemblance between the
finger-print on the hatchet handle and
the prints taken by Schwartz of Ceoe
rrfllo’H finger-prints, taken on June 2
last, the day following the discovery
of the blood-stained hatchet In the
vacant lot on Chester avenue, about
150 feet from where the body of the
Ceeerlello woman had been found two
days previously. '
County Physician William H. Mc
Kenzie was the first witness called
today. He told of examining the body
at Kunz’s morgue, in Orange, and
finding that the woman came to her
death from blows on the head, ap
parently Inflicted by a keen-bladed
instrument, such as the hatchet in
evidence would produce.
Dr HarrlBon S. Martland, pathol
ogist at the City Hospital, testified
that he had examined tho blood
stained hatchet, and by chemical
tests had ascertained that the stains
on the hatchet were made by human
Mood. He also said he had exam
ined strands of hair found clinging
to the hatchet blade, and had on
comparison with hair taken from the
Si;,.; v -.
head of Mrs. Ceceriello found them
identical in color and texture.
Dr. Martland withstood a severe
cross-examtnution at the hands of
Frank M. McDerinit, counsel for
Ceceriello, but his testimony was un
shaken when he left the witrrm
Dr. Martland had said In his testi
mony that it was possible to differ
entiate between the blood of all ani
mals and human blood except be
tween that of monkeys and humans.
Mr. McDermlt's final question was:
"Then you believe all human beings
are monkeys?” Without a moment’s
hesitation Dr. Martland replied: "I
believe men sprung from the
monkey.” He gave the answer in a
way that left no doubt but that ho
was firm in that opinion.
