York Herald, 29 August 1857
JOHN ROBINSON, of New Malton, was charged with killing and slaying his wife, Hannah Robinson… … The prisoner is a carpenter, and in March last resided at a place called Church-hill … … His wife and he certainly did no live on very amicable terms, and at the time this melancholy event happened were not living in the same house. The deceased was rather addicted to liquor, and he believed, when the prisoner was absent, used to be very familiar with a man named Tom Hyde… …
After retiring a few minutes, the jury pronounced the prisoner guilty, but recommended him to mercy, in consequence of the provocation he had received. The Court sentenced him to be imprisoned in Northallerton house of correction to hard labour for the space of six calendar months.
