Wife Sent To Eichen House After Murdering Husband On Tuesday evening April 12th, Mary Maloney, wife of officer Patrick Maloney, had murdered her husband after he had said he was going to divorce her, in their home. Out of anger, Mary Maloney had hit him on the back of his head. Detectives do not know what weapon was used, or where it was hidden. On Tuesday evening, Patrick Maloney had come back from work, but his wife was not home.

Mary Maloney is a very loving and devoted house wife and mother-to-be. Though her dream of having the perfect American family was destroyed by the bewildering news of Patrick choosing another women over Mary and their child. Innocent is all Mary Maloney is, due to her indistinct state of mind caused by her heinous husband’s decision to desert her and her child while she is unable to control her emotions due to her being pregnant. Mary is not guilty of murder instead innocent due to diminished capacity.
Mary was living with one of her coworkers, Lynn Guyette, and was dating a man named Art. Her landlord, Roy Ware, said that he received a letter dated April 9th containing a rent check and notice of Lynn living there, and Mary’s family in North Carolina also received a
Viewing over the evidence the police said that she walked in, saw her husband vulnerable and drunk hits him over the head kills him and tells a lie to her friends. Then takes the pan washes it for her fingerprints to leave, then puts it on the stove claiming it was on when she walked in. Her friends in a drunken state believed her of course. They panicked the called the police claiming that he fell off the top of the stairs. Just like in all murders there is always a reason to why they suspect is not guilty.
Mary has always been a fan of the Liars’ Club where her dad usually take her out and tell people spinning tales. There were times in which Mary described the club as the only place where she could find relief. After the death of Mary’s grandmother, whom she blamed all the family hard times on, the family moved to Colorado since they were more financially independent by the money inherited from grandma. This can be seen as a new chapter for the family.
Mary Ann claimed that she was helping Charles to relieve his illness and she also accused Riley that he had made accusations against her because she didn’t respond to his advances. Mary Ann Cotton was then arrested and because they found evidence that Charles had arsenic. The doctor went to the police and showed the evidence. She was later arrested and was ordered exhumation of Charles’ body. She was charged with his murder, her trial was delayed because of the baby she was carrying inside of her.
The second most important character is the murder victim himself, Patrick Maloney. Mary seems to have a quite inaccurate perception of her husband. She perhaps loves the idea of him and having a normal life more than she actually has affection for him. Patrick, while he is alive which is mostly in the beginning of the story, is withdrawn and mellow, due to the stress caused by having to tell Mary the bad news. This news was most likely asking to divorce her, but the exact reason is never stated up front.
Killing your husband is no big deal, right? Not for Mary Maloney. A casual day is not typically when your house is turned into a murder scene. Sometimes you can’t blame people for their impulse actions; for example, Mary Maloney. Should Mary Maloney face punishment for her wrong doing?
Mary Maloney was sitting in her living room when her husband, Patrick Maloney, came home. This was the premises of the short story, “Lamb to the Slaughter,” composed by Roald Dahl.

In fact, Mary was pregnant with a baby boy.
She went to see Sam at the store and even bought her husband a cake. It is impossible for Mary to be at two places at once so therefore she cannot be guilty for this crime. She is six months pregnant, and she would have needed her husband for support. Mary is an unemployed pregnant women who would have needed the money from her husband’s

Abberline had no reason to distrust this witness, and she continued to adamantly adhere to the times and descriptions she had given. The problem perplexed him, and he later approached Dutton about it, asking, "Do you think it could be a case not of Jack the Ripper but Jill the Ripper?” Also people thought that Jill the Ripper could be a midwife.
The woman, Mary Maloney, loved her husband so much in the story and then he gets home one day and something wrong happens, so in this story, Mary Maloney is having problems. The character, Mary Maloney, in the story “Lamb To The Slaughter,” is a very smart person. She knew what she was doing after she killed her husband to make her story seem real to the detectives.
