A Nurse's Fatal Work

On September 24, 1927, 35-year-old homemaker Martha Kohnke died in Chicago from a criminal abortion performed that day. Nurse Emma Schultz was held by the coroner on October 5.

Schultz had also been implicated in the abortion death of Mary Bambrick in October of 1911, but that case never went to trial.
