I know this case, Hall's wife and brother were put on trial but acquitted.
Modern forensics would have worked it out quick.

A William Sutpen (Justice of the peace) issued warrants for the arrest of Mrs Hall and her brother.
I thought you may not know that. Sutpen is an uncommon name, to me anyway.
