[Anthony Delaney and James Grief were found guilty of murder and sentenced to death and dissection, executed at Tyburn 23 September 1765; Catharine Adams and Elizabeth Walls were acquitted]

 

Anthony Delaney, James Grief, Catharine Adams, otherwise Burk, and Elizabeth Wall, spinster, were indicted, the first for the wilful murder of John Smith, and the other three for being present, aiding, comforting, and assisting the said Delaney to commit the said murder, August 8.

[…]

 

Hannah Butler: There is a little brick wall, that parts my apartment and Wall's; we can hear every word that passes in their house, and they in our's. I remember, the night that Mr. Smith was murdered, I went to bed that night before the watchman came ten; I heard Elizabeth Wall, Catherine Adams, and some men singing. 

 

Q. Do you know the women's voices?

 

H. Butler. I do; they were singing between ten and eleven, on the ground floor; after they had done, they went out and were peaceable some considerable time; till, I believe, about a quarter after twelve, every thing was very quiet; then Elizabeth Wall came into her own apartment; she clapt her hands together, and cried bitterly, and said,

 

"O you barbarous man! how can you use such barbarity! I have robbed the man of what he had: what do you want to kill him for? "
