Mrs. Deaton, Kentucky Step-Mother from Hell - 1879

FULL TEXT: The wife of Martin Deaten, living near Manchester, Ky., murdered her step-daughter, aged 10, in a horrible manner, one day last week, and then carried her body to a field near by and reported that the girl had been trampled to death by a horse, a story which the character of her injuries belied.

[Untitled, The Athens Messenger (Oh.), Mar. 13, 1879, p. 1]
