The victim was the four-week-old child of Mrs Eastwood's husband from a previous relationship. She alleged that she had left him in a convent but instead dropped him from a moving train. She was convicted at the Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey) on 24 June 1938 for murder and sentenced to death (commuted).
