The Supreme Court of Errors and Appeals found no error in the proceedings of the Criminal Court of Davidson in the above case. The court ruled that Jenkins be kept by the sheriff until May 2, 1905 when he will be hanged. However, the court was of the opinion that there were extenuating circumstances and that the punishment ought to be commuted to life imprisonment.
