A Poisoned Life
- Florence Chandler Maybrick, the First American Woman Sentenced to Death in England
- By: Richard Jay Hutto
- Narrated by: Ralph Lister
- Length: 8 hrs and 8 mins
Florence Maybrick was the first American woman to be sentenced to death in England - for murdering her husband, a crime she almost certainly didn't commit. Her 1889 trial was presided over by an openly misogynist judge who was later declared incompetent and died in an asylum. Hours before she was to be hanged, Queen Victoria reluctantly commuted her sentence to life in prison. In her opinion, a woman who would commit adultery, as Maybrick had admitted, would also kill her husband. Her children were taken from her; she never saw them again. Her mother worked for years to clear her name.
Great bio... of Florrie's mum.
