1841 Mrs. Kinney Aquitted of Murdering Husband in New York

January 14, 1841
The Freeman and Messenger Lodi, New York

Trail of Mrs. Kinney....
The trail of this lady which has excited much interest in Boston, for the alleged murder of her
husband, has been decided in her acquittal. It is said when the verdict was rendered there was
great applause, but it was immediately suppressed. The crowd went down into the street and
there gave expressions to their feelings. Mr. K was supposed to have been poisoned by his wife
but on a thorough and protracted examination of the affair no evidence could be found to
substantiate the charge.
