Abstract

Bibiana Prestler was a 26 year-old, Catholic woman who had been married for 3 years to a much older man. The marriage was not a happy one for Bibiana. One night she slipped a leather belt around her husband's neck and dragged him to the main room of the house where he sustained many injuries from being violently yanked back and forth. He was nearly unconscious when Bibiana pulled him up the stairs, fastened the belt to the railing, and left him hanging there. She told the authorities it was a suicide but so many injuries were discovered on his unclothed body that she was charged with his murder. She was sentenced to beheading by the sword.
