Sentenced to Death in Canada

This article appeared in the Pittsburgh Press on March 5, 1928...

They don't give any name of the murderess in the article, but there was a woman sentenced to hang on March 23, 1928. 

Doris McDonald, a 20 year old married American woman, and her husband George McDonald were sentenced to hang for the 1927 murder of Adelard Bouchard, a Lachine taxi driver, in Huntington, Quebec.

Doris McDonald's sentence was commuted to life in prison, while her husband George was hanged on March 23, 1928. 

This article was published in August 1932 when Doris McDonald applied for parole.
