Martha Rendell went to the gallows at Fremantle Prison in 1909, convicted of murdering one stepchild and possibly two others. Reports portrayed her as a monster. Dr Neville Hills was familiar with the story as his great-grandmother was matron at Fremantle Prison at the time. Examination of legal and medical aspects of the case raise doubts about the verdict. Neville will present his findings, accompanied by Nadia King, an author researching a literary project based on the same story.
