ON THIS DAY….. 10th July 1914

In the Brunswick court when Frank White (22) appeared on a charge of having inflicted grievous bodily harm upon Richard Wood on July 10, the charge was altered to one of the murder. Sergeant McLoughlin said Wood died in the Melbourne Hospital as the result of a depressed fracture of the skull, alleged to have been caused by a blow with a bottle from White. White was further remanded, and bail was refused. Subsequently Mr Justice Hodges, in the Supreme Court, granted bail in two sureties of £500 each, and White’s own bond of £1000.
