The 'Pig-Woman' testifies from a hospital bed in the Hall-Mills Trial, Somerville, New Jersey, USA, 1926. The Hall-Mills case related to the grusesome murder of Edward Wheeler Hall (1881-1922), an episcopal priest, and Eleanor Reinhardt Mills (1888-1922), a married member of his congregation with whom he had been having an affair. The suspects were Hall's wife, Frances, and her two brothers, Henry and William Stevens. The prosecution's main witness, Jane Gibson (c1870-1930), was known as the 'Pig Woman' because she raised hogs. She claimed to have witnessed the murder, but her testimony was unreliable as she continually changed aspects of her story and it differed from the conclusions of the coroner. The defendants were found not guilty.
