Killed the daughter of Walter Gibbins, by starving her over a prolonged period. He was aware of the situation but was terrified of his partner. He later committed suicide. There is some suggestion that another child was also killed in the same way. Proctor was convicted at Leeds on 11 March 1918 for murder and sentenced to death (commuted).
