Abstract

Describes details of the robbery and murder of Johann Baptist Schwarz, by Joseph Stopfer and his accomplice, Ludwig Dantinger and how the victim's body was discovered by his sister, Josepha Schwarz. Both men were found guilty according to the Bavarian criminal code, part 1, articles 142, 146 and 147 and sentenced to death. The King commuted Dantinger's sentence because he was only 19 at the time of the murder and had never been in trouble before. Stopfer, who had many prior convictions and was 32 at the time of the crime, was sentenced to a public beheading by the sword.
