ALLEGED MURDER IN SPITALFIELDS. Early on Sunday morning, in Spitalfields, a mar- ried woman named Elizabeth Roberts died from injuries alleged to have been inflicted by her sister, Kate Marshall, who is in custody charged with having murdered her. The deceased woman occu- pied, with her husband and children, the back room on the first floor at 26, Dorset-street, Spitalfields. The front room was occupied by Charles Amery, a wire-worker, and a few minute after twelve o'clock on Sunday morning Amery heard quarrelling in the back room. He took no notice, as quarrels were of fre- quent occurrence, but about a quarter of an hour later, opening his door in response to a knock, he found the husband of the deceased woman struggling with Kate Marshall on the landing, while the 'deceased was standing on the landing, blood pouring from her right breast. Roberts succeeded in wrenching a ihoemaker's knife from Marshall, and he handed it to Amery, who found the handle covered with blood. Mrs. Roberts fainted from loss of blood, and she died in about five minutes. She had sustained a severe wound in the right breast and another in the left arm, the latter evidently inflicted while she was try- ing to protect herself. The husband of the deceased woman stated that Kate Marshall had been living with his wife and himself for three months since she was Liberated on a ticket-of-leave, having been sentenced to five years' penal servitude for stabbing a man with whom she lived.
