already had a boyfriend and resisted Walden's advances towards her.
Consumed by jealousy, he shot dead both the woman and her boyfriend, N.
trial in 1959 he told the court 'I am not as other men. I am a cripple
and must be armed to put me on fair terms with others... I have an
absolute right to kill.'
He was found guilty and sentenced to death.

he was hanged at Armley Jail, Leeds, on 14th August 1959.
