Reg. v. Gamble

Extract

Alfred Gamble, 17, labourer, was indicted for wounding a child named W. C. Cattle, with intent to murder, The case excited great interest on account of the fact that another young child had recently been murdered in the same neighbourhood, and although there was no legal proof of the fact, there can be little doubt that the prisoner was the culprit in that case also. The body of the first child had been found in a dustbin, enveloped in a sack. The second was found, badly wounded, concealed in a stable. The prisoner was found unfit to plead. The case belongs to the same group as the Plaistow murder—that of crimes by “instinctive” juvenile criminals.—Central Criminal Court, Jan. 15 (Mr. Justice Hawkins).—“Times,” Jan. 16, 1896.
