AN INFAMOUS PHASE OF LONDON LIFE. CHARGE OF MURDER AGAINST A i DOCTOR. SHOCKING DISCLOSURES. At Westminster police-court, London, on Mon- day, Adam Addison,-0f 155, Marlborough-road, Chelsea, physician and surgeon, aged 40, and Mary Jane Boyce, of Crescent-place, Fulham-road, married, were charged with being concerned together with causing the death of Mary Ann Bobinson, at a house in Crescent-plaoe, Kensing. ton. Mr. Pollard, from the Treasury, appeared for the prosecution. He said that some time ago information of an anonymous character was given to the police that a shocking crime was being carried on largely by a doctor in Chelsea, and in consequence of that Inspector Butcher was directed to make inquiries. Nothing further occurred until recently, when a young woman named Robinson left her home in a mysterious manner. She left her brother's house on the 8th of February, saying that she was going to visit a friend for two or three days. She never returned, and her friends instituted inquiries and communicated with the police, who ultimately found that a woman answering her description had been buried at Hanwell in the name of Mary Chapman, and that she died in the house in Fal. ham-road under circumstances which justified the arrest of both the prisoners. Emily Campion, single, said she worked for Mrs. Boyoe, and she recollected a young woman coming there some four or five weeks ago on a Saturday night. On the Saturday morning Mrs. Boyoe said she was going to have a young person to stop with her for a week, who was going under an operation. On the Sunday morning witness saw the young woman in bed. The photograph (produced) was a likeness of the young woman. She told witness that she was in pain. She told Mrs. Boyce that 'she was in great pain, and Mrs. Boyce said "You must expect it for a little while." Dr. Addison came about six o'clock on the Sunday evening. Wit- ness was then in the house every day, except Tuesday, till after the death. On the first day Dr. Addison only came once or twice, but towards the end of the week he came three or four times a day. The yorwgwoman died on Monday, the 17th of f ebruary. She had never been up or dressed all the time she was at the house. She died about mid-day on the Monday. The doctor had been to see her that morning. The body was taken away by a Mr. Gamble, the undertaker, the same evening. Mrs. Boyce went to fetch the under. taker. On the Thursday witness accom- panied Mrs. Boyce to Mr. Gamble's shop, and thence to Hanwell, where the de- ceased was buried. Witness had mentioned to Mrs. Boyce that, the friends of the deceased would wonder why it waa not put in the paper. On the first Monday morning, in the presence of Mrs. Boyce, the deceased said to witness, "You should have been a little bit sooner; you would have seen the child." Mrs. Boyce made no re- mark at all. Witness afterwards said to Mrs. Boyce, If it was known about her death, would Dr. Addison get puniBhed ?" and Mrs. Boyce said, I suppose so." The deceased was known by the name of Annie in the house, and Mrs. Boyce said if any one asked who the young woman was she was to say it was her cousin. Mr. Smyth, who defended for the prisoners, reserved his cross- examination. He asked the magistrate to take bail, and stated that Dr. Addison was prepared to meet this charge. Mr. Mansfield declined to admit either of the prisoners to bail, and remanded them.
