MURDER OF MRS. McGLINN
N. P. Lawrence Committed INQUEST CONCLUDED
Perth, July 20.— The inquest into the death of Ellen Margaret Christina McGlinn (53), widow, of Lindsay street, Perth, was concluded before the coroner, Mr. T. H. Hannah, acting S.M., in the Perth Courthouse to-day. Mrs. McGlinn was found to be dead on arrival at the Perth Hospital on June 26 following an incident on a small reserve at the corner of Bulwer and Brisbane streets. On Monday 13 witnesses were examined and to-day a further ten were examined.
Norman Pugh Lawrence (34), turner, of Aberdeen street, Perth, who was charged with the murder of Mrs. McGlinn, was present in court in custody. He was represented by Mr. John Dunphy.
Detective-Sergeant A. J. Blight examined witnesses.
John Patrick Reynolds, a member of the A.M.F., said he was at the scene of the disturbance on the corner of Bulwer and Brisbane streets about 6.50 p.m. on June 26. He saw Lawrence and told him to wait until the police arrived. He alleged that Lawrence said: ‘I know I have done something wrong and I will take what is coming to me.’
Constable Laurence Henry Tully said he was called to the scene about the same time and saw a woman lying near a shrub on the reserve with her body exposed. She had head injuries. Witness said he felt for her pulse and he came to the conclusion the woman was dead.
Constable Lionel Claude Hull said that he was present at the Perth Hospital when orderlies undressed Lawrence and found a red scarf in his pocket. The scarf had been previously identified by Mrs. McGlinn’s daughter as very similar to the one her mother wore. Detective A. Wedd testified that while Lawrence was being examined in the observation ward at the Perth Hospital he found a piece of grass about 2 in. long in Lawrence’s underclothing. Later he made a search of the locality of the reserve and found a woman’s shoe, size 5, which matched in every detail the shoe removed from Mrs. McGlinn at the Perth Hospital.
Detective-Sergeant A. J. Blight said that Lawrence gave him a detailed statement of his movements on the day of June 26. Lawrence told him that he was a returned soldier from this war and had lost his sight of one eye. Lawrence stated that he did not suffer from shell shock. “I showed Lawrence the red scarf on the day following the death of Mrs. McGlinn,” added witness, ” and Lawrence said it looked like one he had picked up on the previous night.”
At the conclusion of the evidence the coroner found that Ellen Margaret Christina McGlinn came by her death at a reserve on the corner of Bulwer and Brisbane streets on June 26 as the result of head injuries, and shock caused by being hit on the head by a blunt instrument by Norman Pugh Lawrence, who also committed rape on the deceased. The coroner also found that Norman Pugh Lawrence wilfully murdered Mrs. McGlinn and committed him for trial at the next sittings of the Criminal Court at Perth.
