Date: 13 Sep 1902
Place: 34 Coombe Street, Exeter
Jane Emma Spatt died from injuries but the Coroner was unable to tell how she had received them.
She later died from her injuries in the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
The Coroner said that he could not help thinking that there was something that there was something behind the case that they had been unable to fathom.
A policeman said that he had known Jane Spatt and her husband for twenty years and said that her husband had been convicted for ill-treating his wife several times. He said that he had been to 34 Coombe Street which was a house let out in several tenements to carry out his investigation as well as around the neighbourhood but was unable to throw further light on the case.
