Lizzie Borden's lawyer journals see the light

Journals by Lizzie Borden's lawyer shed new light on the infamous double murder case By The Associated Press

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) ' A series of journals kept by a lawyer who represented Lizzie Borden in her 1893 double murder trial are shedding new light on the case.

The journals by attorney Andrew Jackson Jennings were willed to the Fall River Historical Society by Jennings' grandson, Edward Saunders Waring, who recently died.

They contain among other information, details of interviews he conducted in building his defense.



Museum curator Michael Martins tells The Herald News (http://bit.ly/zhc36L) the journals contain some never before published information about the infamous case, including details some interviewees gave describing a caring relationship between Borden's father, Lizzie and her sister.

Borden was charged with using an ax to kill her father and stepmother in 1892. Although she was acquitted, many people thought she literally got away with murder.
