An Insane Mother Burns to Death Her Child
Word reaches us that a Mrs. Morris, living on Stinson, in Clay county,
close the Calhoun county line, while in a fit of insanity one day last
week, burned her year old baby to death.
We have been unable to learn the details, but it is said that she held
the child with its feet in the fire until they were burned almost off,
and then held its head in the fire until the poor thing was dead.
The report is well authenticated, and there is no doubt as to its truth.
