It was October, 1915 in San Francisco and Mr. Pamias who had a job as a conductor was surprised when his wife told him she wanted to sleep in another place besides the rooms they rented in a lodging house. When he pressed her on the reason, she admitted to killing a peddler who she said had tried to attack her after she refused to elope with him. She wanted to flee the city, but her husband took her to the police station the following day.
