The Jury in the Biddulph Case Bring in a Verdict of "Not Guilty"

The trial of James Carroll, for the murder of Judith Donnelly closed on Wednesday. After being locked up for about four hours, the jury brought in a verdict of "Not Guilty." There is still a possibility of charges being brought against the prisoner and his colleagues for the murder of the other members of the ill-fated Donnelly family. The prisoners were released on bail, and left for home amid the cheers of hundreds of their friends.
