murder, Santo and Perkins tried to saw their way out of jail but was foiled in their escape try. As the
trial went on, Barbara Graham (right) tried vainly to disassociate herself from her co-defendants.

the gas chamber for the murder of Mabel Monohan.

 

 

Barbara Graham (arrow) is seen talking to Jack Santo and Emmett Perkins who are

Here are two of three defense witnesses who have been subpenaed to testify in the Monohan murder

with my husband" at the time Mrs. Monohan was slain. At left is her husband, Henry L. Graham.
In center is William Croft, a former neighbor who claims he heard the fight. Right: Mrs. Croft.
