No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 February 1875

A i~AnsIN cry has gone forth from the Press of Victoria respecting the present anomalous state of oun criminal code, as illustrated by the acquittal of the min in usler, who was tried, for the murder of his wife, at Melbourno a few dayns back?. This HIusler was acquitted on the ground of insanity. From the evidlence of thle medical experats and others, it appears that the murder was committed while Husler was in a state of delirium tremens,.and the jury who tried hins had no other course left open to them b)ut to have IHusler hanged, or acquitted on the ground of insanity. He is to be detaimed duinig the will of the Governor. This, is to say the least of it, a very unsatisfactory ternination to this case. It is possible that Huslei may be kept in prisoaxfor a few months, and theii discha.ged again, so as to give him the opporttunity of drinking him self into deliriumn trenmens once more, and then committing another murder.
