She states, he said, she went home on the 4th, and her husband violently assaulted her. In consequence of his behaviour she made up her mind that she could not live with him any longer, and knowing there was money upstairs, she took it to provide for her immediate necessities. It was stated that the sum of £12 was found in the woman’s box.
She was remanded till Wednesday.
