    On the morning of August 14, 1935, Virginia Seigh, an attractive 23-year-old secretary, was shot and killed as she stood in the driveway of a home in Queens, New York. Her murderer was Mrs. Etta Reisman, the 35-year-old wife of Arthur Reisman, a 42-year-old well-to-do owner of a beauty salon chain. The previous day, Reisman had confessed to his wife he had fallen in love with Miss Seigh - his secretary, who had resided with the Reismans for seven years - and wanted a separation. This did not set well with Etta, who felt totally betrayed by her husband and their house guest.
