MCCALMAN

The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-THE ALDRIDGE MURDER CASE.
The case of The People vs. Naomi ALDRIDGE, charged with the murder of her oldest boy, between eight and nine years of age, on July 9th by the administration of arsenic, was called for examination before Justice George MAHON on last Thursday. The prisoner was brought in by Sheriff STILWELL closely veiled in black, and accompanied by her sister, Mrs. McCALMAN of Frederic. She was defended by Messrs. E. M. HARRIS, Pros. Att'y of Ogemaw County, his partner, Mr. ROSS, and Attorney SNODGRASS of West Branch. The court room was filled with interested and inquisitive people, as might be expected in such a case, and every word was listened to with intense eagerness until the examination was closed Friday afternoon.
The evidence of Dr. O'NEIL of Frederic, described the symptoms of poisening identical in the two boys, and his action as Coroner in ordering a post mortem examination by Dr. INSLEY, and the analysis of the viscera taken by him from the body and sent to Prof. Frank S. KEDZIE of Lansing, who testified to the recovery of a quantity of the poison from this subject. Several of her neighbors were sworn concerning the care of her children, and her actions during their illness and at the time of their death, and as has been published, it was shown that she had insured them in the National Relief Society, of Bay City, for fifty dollars each, payable at their death, but a few days previous.
The cross examination of the witnesses was searching in character, and at the close a formal motion was made for her discharge which was remanded for trial in the Circuit Court. But little emotion was exhibited by the prisoner during the ordeal, until about the close, before which time she was alert and evidently calling the attention of her counsel to points of evidence as they were presented.
It is a sad case at best, presenting as it does the highest grade of criminality, or a degree of insanity unaccountable, or a succession of circumstances that could hardly be imagined. It can only be hoped that the facts may be fully proven whichever they may point. (31 Aug 1905)
