Summary
Bigelow and Bemis were counsel for Rogers. While a prisoner, Rogers stabbed the warden at Charlestown prison to death. He was acquitted on the ground of insanity, but committed suicide a few weeks after the trial by throwing himself out of a window. The case is significant for its early and successful presentation of the insanity defense
