Willie Mae Dincken, Knife-Wielding Alabama Black Widow – 1950


FULL TEXT: Birmingham (Alabama) – A 30-year-old Negro woman accused of stabbing to death with a knife her second male victim in two years was back in prison today.

She is Willie Mae Dincken, who appeared before Circuit Judge J. Russell McElroy yesterday on a charge she stabbed her common-law husband, Sellers Thompson, to death last month in a quarrel over a $14 check.

The Dinken woman was on probation from a 10-year prison sentence she drew in 1948 for conviction of manslaughter in the butcher-knife slaying of Willie Daniels.
