Preliminary Hearing in the Lizzie Borden Case




Preliminary Hearing in the Borden Case before Judge Blaisdell, August 25 through September 1, 1892

This brand new version of Lizzie’s Preliminary Hearing is unique. It combines a number of transcriptions from various sources in an effort to reproduce, as accurately and authentically as possible, the day-to-day proceedings of this all-important legal event in the history of the Borden murders of 1892.

We are proud to say that the document finally reads in the order in which the witnesses were called and includes the closing statements of the defense and prosecution, the judge’s summation and verdict, the testimony of Thomas Keiran, and contains the entirety of Lizzie’s own Inquest testimony which was read into the official record but not reproduced in the original transcription.

Searchable and complete. With introductory essay by Harry Widdows and Stefani Koorey that provides much needed information on the preliminary hearing process and Lizzie’s process specifically.

ALSO INCLUDED: separate break-out testimonies of all major witnesses in PDF format. If you are looking for just one somebody’s testimony without opening the larger files, here is your perfect research companion.
