On July 12, 1922, two young women spent the day in a Long Beach speakeasy, drinking and commiserating about their unfaithful husbands.  That evening, on a remote road in Los Angeles, one of those women would beat a romantic rival to death with a hammer.  The brutal  murder case became one of Southern California's very first trials of the century, with the accused becoming the object of almost cult-like fascination in the public.
