ON THIS DAY – September 29, 1900

Edward Harrison, accused of murdering his paramour, Sarah Ann Johnson, at King- street, East Brunswick, on Saturday evening last, by cutting her throat, was before Messrs. J Manning and Stranks, J.P.’s at the local court yesterday. Sergeant Muldarry asked for a remand for a week. The prisoner did not speak. In court he looked the picture of wretchedness and dejection. He is a thin, undersized man, and had on a blue striped shirt, a very ragged brown coat, of which little more than the lining was left, tweed trousers, patched with moleskin at the knees. The bench remanded accused, to appear again before the court on Monday next.
