326. JOSEPH GEORGE DEFRIEZ (50) , Feloniously killing and slaying Sarah Parker. He was also charged on the Coroner's Inquisition with the like offence.

MESSRS. HARRIS and HUMPHERY conducted the Prosecution; and MR. METCALFE the Defence.

It appeared, from the medical evidence, that the cause of death was rupture of the womb, caused, probably, by the presence of twins, and not by any neglect of the prisoner, who was the surgeon attending the deceased.
