THE TONYPANDY FAMILY AFFRAY. INQUEST AND VERDICT. On Friday afternoon at the Cross Keys Hotel, Tonypandy, Mr R. J. Rhys, coroner, held an inquiry touching the death of James Blake, 119, Primrose street, Tonypandy, It was shown by the evidence that deceased came home in a drunken state, asked his wife for more money to get drink, and upon being told she had none he threw a plate at her. He then caught hold of a knife and was rushing towards her, when her son struck him with a poker, causing a wound on his head. The jury returned a verdict "That deceased died from congestion of the brain, due to the formation of an abscess, as the result of a blow delivered with a poker on the 26th of July," but added that "the blow was justifiable under the circumstances." The Coroner: I quite agree with you; I would have done the same thing myself.
