I am wondering where the details for the information regarding the death sentence and date of trial was obtained as it is not listed on this record?

Hi Jen - I can only assume one of our fabulous volunteers did some research in other places to come up with the information, hence the square brackets. Unfortunately, you are correct - as a transcription it should only contain the information visible on the record so we may have to remove this information
