Description

The Trial of Julia Bourland for the murder of Maud Allen

In 1897 it was the love triangle that shook the city, and the murder that made history. The whole thing played out in public, complete with timely reports in the local newspapers.

When Fagan Bourland took his first look at young and lovely Maud Allen, he set in motion events that would take her life. While Fagan was happy with his young mistress, his wife, Julia, wanted her out of the picture.
