Welsh Country Magazine March 2017 Edition

My story in the March edition of Welsh Country Magazine is about the brutal murder of an elderly couple in Bassaleg Newport in 1909. Charles Thomas was 82 and his wife Mary was 72 and they were beaten to death by William Butler with a hammer. Even though, as the headline tells us, he told the police ‘I never did do it,’ he was nevertheless hanged in March 1910 in Usk Prison.
Welsh Country Magazine is available from newsagents and supermarkets including Marks and Spencer and Waitrose – only £2.95.
