On the morning of March 17th, 1926, the Merrett's were breakfasting together when the servant heard a gunshot. She found 55-year-old Bertha lying bleeding from a head wound in the dining room. Her son insisted she had shot herself. It gradually came to light that Merrett had been defrauding his mother, forging her checks to pay for his extravagance. He was arrested in November 1926. The trial early the next year caused a sensation in Britain, with the exotic-looking “Donnie" charged with matricide.
