- George, a mixed-race slave, was charged with the murder of James Meadows. Meadows had been dragged from his bed by three men during the night. The evidence of his young son, Seth Meadows, who had been sleeping in the same room, was inconsistent as to his identifying one of the three men as the prisoner. Despite this, the jury passed a guilty verdict with sentence of death, from which George appealed. The Supreme Court found that the son's testimony was admissible as it had been corroborated by others'. Judgment affirmed.
