Mrs Hall was an American No-Maj woman accused of murdering her husband, Reverend Hall, and a Mrs Mills on 14 September 1926.[1][2]

At the trial held later in 1926, a Mrs Gibson testified that, on the night of the murders, she saw Mrs Hall in De Russey Lane with a male companion.[1][2] Mrs Gibson stated she was able to see their faces because of a passing car.[1][2] George Sipel was subpoenaed to confirm her claim he was driving this vehicle.[1][2] Mrs Gibson claimed that she had heard that Sipel had told his friend, John Garry, that he had seen her on the night of the murders.[1][2] Sipel denied this allegation and reportedly showed a "frantic eagerness" to avoid testifying.[1][2] The trial was reported on in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.[1]
