My age: 18
By Ginger Adams Otis. It was called Murderess Row, the section of the Cook County Jail in Chicago reserved for women waiting to stand trial for murder — and init was the place to be. Women in the Windy City seemed to have gone mad. There were over a dozen women in lockdown, most of them for killing a husband or lover.
The good-looking ones rarely did hard time — but got the full attention of the rabid local press. Women like Sabella Nitti, a poor Italian immigrant who spoke no English and was accused of beating her farmer husband to death with a hammer and chopping him into pieces — with the help of her lover — were household names.
It was the Prohibition-era Jazz Age, when gin and guns frequently mixed, and women were pushing societal boundaries like never before. Chicago took its cultural obsessions to extremes, from jazz to politics to architecture. Most of all, in the middle of the Prohibition, the city reveled in its contempt for the law.

Belva was hauled into jail, and spent her three months on Murderess Row making up bon mots to tell the papers and trading quips with other cellmates. Her ex-husband, a wealthy industrialist named William Gaertner, came crawling back in her hour of need and paid for her defense team.
Belva had ly gained notoriety when, during her first divorce from Gaertner, she admitted to using a horsewhip on the older man during their lovemaking sessions. With no witnesses and no material evidence that clearly fingered Belva, her lawyers simply posited that Law had killed himself in the front seat of her car, and a drunken, panicked Belva fled to her home and blacked out. Belva was acquitted Housewives looking hot sex Goodland Florida June — three months after the killing.
Like her celluloid counterpart, Beulah was delicate and fine-boned.
A vision, writes Perry, and she knew it. She would rub her lips. The image proved irresistible: the thin straight nose, the high cheekbones.
