Huddersfield Daily Chronicle (29/Dec/1891) - The Linthwaite Murder: The Day of Execution Fixed
THE LINTHWAITE MURDER.
THE DAY OF EXECUTION FIXED.
The High Sheriff of Yorkshire (Mr. Arthur Wilson) has fixed the execution of James Stockwell (32), farm labourer, who was sentenced to death at the recent assizes, at Leeds, for the murder of a servant girl, named Catherine Dennis, at Linthwaite, near Huddersfield, for January 5th. It is not yet definitely known who will be the executioner, but in all probability Billington, of Bolton, who has conducted the executions at Armley for many years, will fill the office.
