KAYSVILLE KINKS #111 IN SERIES - MARCH 1900
The time of Judge Rolapp and a jury has been occupied today in the trial of the case against Ella Curtis Garlick, the Kaysville woman accused of setting fire to Swan & Co. Saloon on the night of February 24, 1899. The defense set up the plea of temporary insanity and to prove it put the defendant on the stand. She testified she was periodically afflicted with St. Vitus Dance (a nerve disorder characterized by involuntary jerky movements, also including emotional or behavioral problems) , and that certain conditions, peculiar to her sex, had rendered her extremely nervous. Her husband came home drunk and in one of her nervous spells, the deed of which she is accused, was committed. At 4:30pm the case went to the jury. No verdict has yet been rendered.
