670. ELLEN POWER, Unlawfully neglecting and ill-treating George Power, a boy under the age of four years, in a way calculated to cause him suffering and injury to his health.

MESSRS. GILL and BODKIN Prosecuted.

MR. JUSTICE CHARLES called MR. GILL'S attention to the fact that neglect and ill-treatment, which were separate misdemeanours, were charged together in one Count. MR. GILL suggested that he could elect to proceed upon one charge, and treat the other as surplusage. MR. JUSTICE CHARLES assenting to this, MR. GILL stated that he would treat the case as one of neglect only.

The JURY found the Prisoner


There was another indictment against the Prisoner for the manslaughter of the said child, upon which no evidence was offered.
