Edward Hovey

Little Murders:
From Defenders and Offenders:


Edward Hovey.


Edward Hovey was hanged in New York City on October 19, 1883, for the murder of his sister-in-law. The murder was unprovoked and he deserved his doom. He called at his sister-in-law’s house and after quarreling with her, shot her down in cold blood. He was so completely broken down before his execution, that he had to be dosed with whiskey, while a morphine injection was also given him.









Defenders and offenders. New York: D. Buchner & Co., 1888.
