The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors. If the article was published prior to 1 June 1957, then the text is likely in the Public Domain.


The magisterial hearing of the charge against James Stockwell of murdering Catherine Dennis, at Linthwaite, on the 21st ult., is fixed to come on at the West Riding Police Court, Princess Street, this (Monday) morning at 11. Messrs. Laycock, Dyson, and Laycock, solicitors, have received instructions from the Treasury to prosecute, and it is probable that Mr. A.H.J. Fletcher will undertake the duty. We understand that Mr. J. Lewis Sykes, of King Street, has been retained for the defence, and that he intends to make an application for a week's further remand in order to prepare his case. It is anticipated that this application will very probably not be opposed.
