A Historic Murder Case


Mary Ann Cotton, convicted and hanged in Durham Gaol, in 1873, for killing three of her four husbands.

Stephanie Yearnshire, formerly Commander of Police and Detective Superintendent will talk to us about the case.  We will be asked to make up our minds as to Mary Ann Cotton’s guilt or innocence.
