1759 — Stevenson

From the Sussex Advertiser May 1759 ( through British Newspaper Archive)- it appears that Stevenson was found guilty of the indictment of Murder of a Mr Elcock, but that there was an irregularity with his arrest warrant, which was a point of law that would have to be decided by 12 judges, (presumably in London). Despite searching, I cannot find any further reference to this case.
