Freed in 50-Cent Stabbing

Mrs. Anna Sheehan quarreled with her husband, who earned $30 [$599 in Feb. 2022] a week, last New Year’s Eve, because he had spent 50 cents [$9.99 in Feb. 2022] for a beer. In the course of the quarrel [Mr.] Sheehan was stabbed with a kitchen knife. He died of the wound. Mrs. Sheehan, charged with the death, shown with their three children, was acquitted by a jury in Queens County Court, New York City, after five hours’ deliberation.
