The additional evidence having been given, the ooroner summed up the whole of the facts adduced, which he said disclosed a shocking state of affairs. The cause of death was inanition from the want of proper food and nourishment.

The ques- ( tion for the consideration of the jury was, whether the evidence showed that the deceased died from gross and wilful negligence of the parents—if so it would amount to wilful murder. The jury, after brief consultation, returned a verdict of Wilfu1 murder against Edward and Ann Stack, for feloniously killing and slaying their infant child, Joseph Stack.
