How to find out more about claiming compensation with injury lawyers in Kingspark
Kingspark is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. In March 1876, people around Glasgow would have been talking about a shocking double murder which took place. Thomas Barr was on trial for the murder of both his wife and his mother in law. The court was crowded and there was also a large gathering of folks outside who had not been able to gain admittance to the court because it was so packed.
Mr Barr was described as a man of medium height and build with dark hair and whiskers. He looked pale but bore himself upright. The court heard the deposition of Mrs Barr as she lay in the infirmary before she died. She had said that she had been married to Thomas for two years and they had one child which was born nine months after the marriage. She had had to leave Thomas many times before as he became violent because of her infidelity which was imagined on his part. At the time of the attack, she had left him once again and gone to stay with her mother.
Stabbed her many times in the back
On March 1st 1876, at three o’clock in the afternoon, Thomas turned up at her mother’s house. Her mother answered the door and tried to get rid of Thomas. However, he barged through and viciously attacked her, stabbing her many times in her back with a pen-knife. He did the same to her mother. William Sloane, the son and brother of the murdered women, found them.
Thomas Barr pleaded insanity but when the jury returned only thirty minutes later, it was with a death sentence. Thomas Barr shocked the court by giving a speech which declared the jury were completely wrong and when he went to meet his maker on March 31st, God would know that. Even though that was in 1876, we know that knife violence still continues.
