A WOMAN BRUTALLY MURDERED BY HER SON. On Monday an inquest was held at Liverpool on the body of Catherine M'Cormick, a widow, 65 years of age, who had lived in No. 3 Court, Thurlow-street, with her son, Owen M'Cormick, a carter. From the evidence it appeared that about two o'clock in the morning of the 19th of June, the son of the deceased was requested by his mother to go to bed, he being under the influence of drink. He used some very offensive language towards her, knocked her down with a blow, stamped upon her several times, and then jumped upon her. He afterwards seized her by the hair, and dashed her head against the wall and the floor. He then struck her with a boot about the face and head, and afterwards with a poker. In a short time afterwards he again jumped upon her face, saying that he would kill her before morning. Next day he was apprehended on the charge of having violently assaulted his mother, and taken before the stipendiary magistrate, who remanded him. The deceased was then in a precarious state, and died from the effects of the injuries she had received. The jury returned a verdict of Wilful Murder against the son of the de- ceased, and he was committed for trial at the assizes.
