Another Executed Today entry of mine ran this day: Peter Lung, a wife-beater from early 19th-century Connecticut. He was hanged after he accidentally beat his wife to death. My entry makes the argument that he was “culpable, but not necessarily guilty as charged” and a more appropriate charge for him would have been manslaughter rather than murder.

For this week I did Justin Phillip Harris and Kimberly Anne Palmer. Both very mysterious cases.
