Alleged Murder and Suicide in a Crowded Room.
A man named John Fritchley is alleged to have murdered his sweetheart, Miss Beatrice Fielding, at her home in Merryfields Street, Queens Road, Manchester, last night. He afterwards committed suicide.
Four other persons were in the room when the tragedy occurred, and one of them narrowly escaped the fate that befell Miss Fielding. Jealousy is supposed to have been the motive for the crime. (Yorkshire Evening Post, December, 1905)
