Mrs. Sophie Layton of Raleigh, North Carolina, was sentenced to five years for the abortion death of 20-year-old Miss Celia Roberts of Granville County. Celia had gone to Raleigh in July of 1931 for an abortion, which was perpetrated on July 22. She was taken to a hospital in Oxford, where she died on July 24 after naming Layton as her abortionist. Interestingly enough, it appears that a local Justice of the Peace had referred Celia to Layton for the fatal abortion.
On July 16, 1929, Dr. Sven Windrow
performed an abortion on 19-year-old Emmy Anderson at a Chicago
location. Emmy died on July 24. Dr. Windrow was held by the coroner on
July 25. Jacque Lagrave, age 67, was held as an accessory. Windrow was
indicted February 6, 1929 for felony murder. I've been unable to learn anything more about the case.
