Daily Gleaner (Jamaica)
24 January 1889

At the Circuit Court held in Spanish Town on Tuesday, before Mr. Justice Northcote, the case of Regina vs. Benjamin Ranger, charged with the murder of a woman named Letitia Crawford, was heard, the Hon S.C. Burke, acting Attorney General, prosecuting, and Mr. Barrister R. H. Coke, defending the prisoner. The trial lasted until a late hour in the evening, and at its close the jury, after hearing the address of Counsel and the Judge’s charge, returned a verdict of guilty. The Judge thereupon delivered the usual address and pronounced the death-sentence upon the prisoner.
