1829 - Attempted Murder

Hesekiah Willibor, of Little Compton, Rhode Island, has been tried at Newport for an attempt to commit murder, found guilty, and sentenced to pay $50, and be imprisoned 3 months. Willibor had paid his addresses to a young woman, but having been discarded, he had been heard to utter threats of revenge, and soon after this a gun was discharged into the chamber in which she slept, and the ball struck within two feet of her head. The evidence against him was altogether circumstantial.
