Gordon Stewart Northcott was found guilty of having committed three murders, and was sentenced to hang. His mother, Sarah Louise, was found guilty of the murder of Walter Collins and sentenced to life in prison.
 
he was Canadian (moved to California in 1924)


On February 13, Freeman sentenced him to death. He was hanged on October 2, 1930, at San Quentin State Prison. The rope failed to break Northcott's neck, resulting in taking 13 minutes for him to die from strangulation.

*gosh that's a pity
