When children in her care died, baby-farmer Amelia Dyer was charged with neglect and served six months in jail. Later she spent time in a mental asylum but carried on baby-farming. In 1896 she was hanged for the murder of Doris Marmon, a child in her care, but is suspected of having killed many more infants.
