59-year-old baby farm murderess Amelia Dyer, originally Hobley aka The Ogress of Reading pleads guilty to the murder of 4-months-old Doris Marmon in Old Bailey Criminal Court, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

It took the jury only four and a half minutes to find Dyer guilty. There is little doubt she was responsible for many more similar deaths - possibly 400 or more - over a period of perhaps 20 years.
