Sport and Work on the Nepaul Frontier

James Inglis (born ca. 1922 – died 8 May 1951) was a British man executed for murder at the age of 29.

Having confessed to strangling Alice Morgan, a 50-year-old woman who was working as a prostitute in Kingston upon Hull on 1 February 1951 after a quarrel over payment, Inglis opted to plead insanity at his trial.[1] The jury did not believe his version of events, and on 20 April he was sentenced by Justice Ormerod to be hanged.[1] He was jailed atStrangeways Prison to await execution. Because Inglis did not appeal against his sentence, execution was scheduled to take place only three weeks after the trial ended (according to law, after the passage of three Sundays).[1]
