CHARLES ALLEN BLYTHE

Colchester


WIFE MURDER IN ESSEX

On Monday morning a shocking case of wife murder occurred at Newport, Essex. The deceased, Emily Blythe, 26, had come recently to live there to be near her mother, and was near her confinement. Charles Allen Blythe, the alleged murderer, is 33, and a native of Colchester. He was a travelling jeweller and betting man, and only came home occasionally. He arrived at Newport on Saturday night, and early on Sunday morning a neighbour heard a fall in Blythe's house, and subsequently Blythe was seen outside in an excited state waving his arms, and he told deceased's brother that he had shot Emily, who was found lying dead on the floor in her bedroom. Blythe handed to the police a five-chambered revolver, saying it was loaded. One chamber had recently been discharged. The prisoner had been in Bethlehem Hospital three months since Christmas, and also in the Highgate Infirmary, and it was said that he had attempted suicide and to strangle his wife, who got him released from Bethlehem on her own responsibility, but he came out of Highgate Infirmary unexpectedly. The jury returned a verdict of "Wilful murder," and the prisoner was committed for trial.

PICKFORD & DRAPER

Ipswich


On Thursday, at the Ipswich Police Court, Messrs. Pickford and Draper, silversmiths, were fined £50 for neglecting to take out a silversmiths' license. The defendants have recently opened a second shop for the sale of their goods, and it was in respect to this that the charge was preferred. The contention for the defence was that a license for the second shop was not required by law.
