Abstract

Carl Ludwig Klencker was a 44 year-old, married, Catholic, wine merchant who claimed to be only an accomplice in the murder of Maria Philippina von Gazza on Oct. 9, 1767. He said he and a stranger had planned the robbery but the other man struck the victim in the temple with a stone then cut her throat with Klencker's knife. The alleged murderer then was to have run off with a money belt containing a small amount of coinage. Due to the fact that no other likely accomplice was ever found and that Klencker himself was found to be in possession of much of the victim's money, jewelry and other valuables, he was charged with and convicted of both murder and robbery. According to Article 137 of the criminal code in place under Emperor Carl V, Klencker was sentenced to death by being broken at the wheel from the top down.
