Prisoner replied "Wife She i? not my wife. I nevertouchedher. The Magistrates' Clerk Did you seethe woman ?. —P.C. Williams: I went with her to the house. Prisoner said she did it herself, and pulled a knife out of his pocket, and said "She did it with this herself." Mr R. Cooke, surgeon, said the woman Rees was brought to him by the police. He found she bad two incised wounds on the right side of her throat. One was three and a quarter inches long, and then there was an interval of about a quarter of an inch, and a continuation of the same wound about an inch long. The wounds were just gaping. Witness put in two sutures. The woman had lost blood. She was not fit to give evidence, although he believed she was in court. The sutures had not yet been removed. Supt. Sinclair asked for a remand for a week, which was granted, and prisoner, who looks younger than he is described, was remitted to Usk. The woman Rees began to sob, and ultimately followed prisoner out of court.
