TO GET RID OF HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW He Bought a Revolver. STORY OF A PENYGRAIG HUSBAND'S CRUELTY. THREATENED TO SHOOT HIS WIFE. HE WOULD "SMASH HER HEAD." At the Porth Police Court on Thursday- before the Stipendiary and Dr T. W. Parry-a Williamstown baker named Owen Leet was sum- moned for persistent cruelty to his wife Kate. Mr J. Phillips, solicitor, Pontypridd, prosecu- ted. The couple were married five years ago, and four children of the marriage are still alive. Some time ago they moved from Devonport to Williamstown. About Easter the defendant gave his wife some money to buy goods. She paid 4s 6d for the goods, and gave him the change. He demanded that she should tell him of every penny that had been spent, and he was very quick tempered. He occasionally smashed crockery if she refused to let him know of every halfpenny that had been spent. He also threatened to shoot her. In Jubilee week her mother came to visit her, and the defendant abused her mother very much. He pushed his wife off the chair, and told her that if she was not in bed in half an hour's time he would smash her hea,d. She stayed away from the house for two nights in consequence of his vio- lence. Corroborative evidence was given by Lucy Terry and Ann Wills. For the defence it was urged that defendant bought the revolver in order to get rid of his mother-in-law, who was the root of all this disturbance. The hearing of the case occupied some time, and the Bench ultimately granted a separation order, and ordered defendant to pay 12s 6d pei week towards his wife's maintenance.
