Thanks. As I recall the Italians as their attorney had Charles S. Thomas (later a Colorado governor and a U.S. Senator). By having them plead guilty to a judge without a jury trail, Thomas kept them from being executed because the law said only juries could sentence people to death. It was a brilliant legal move on Thomas' part.

Thanks for the info. I had not gone down the Thomas rabbit hole yet, but he certainly had an effective strategy.

Never forget the one child that got away and wasn't slain.

Do you have a source for that? Nothing I read mentioned it, but I would love to find out more about that child.
