100 years ago - 1915 February 8 - As he arrives at his Toronto home, Charles Massey, the cousin of actor Raymond Massey, is shot and killed on his front porch. Mr. Massey's killer is, his maid, Carrie Davies, 18, who claims that she shot him in order to defend her honor. Davies was put on trial and, although she admitted to killing her employer, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

50 years ago - 1965 February 8 - In San Antonio's Gunter Hotel, a maid enters room 636 to find it covered in gore from top to bottom. She stands in shock as a man rushes past her and out of the door. That man will soon be identified a one Walter A. Emerick. Two days later, police locate him in another nearby hotel but he kills himself with his gun before they can get his door open. The volume of blood in room 636 left no doubt that a murder had occurred there and the presumed victim was a tall blonde woman who had been seen with Emerick on the day before the maid's discovery. Despite major efforts by police, the victim was never identified nor was her body ever found. The popular theory is that Emerick chopped her into little pieces, ran those through a meat grinder then flushed that product down the toilet.

50 years ago - 1965 February 16 - The body of Bridie O'Hara, the final victim of Jack the Stripper, is found behind a storage shed. Bridie had last been seen in front of a London hotel five weeks earlier. Effectively and although no-one knows it yet, this is the end of the case since the serial killer was never captured or identified.

I'd never heard of Walker before, but he seems to have been a real piece of work: http://murderpedia.org/male.W/w/walker-clarence.htm

150 years ago - 1865 February 28 - Jane Taylor dies of, what will later prove to be, antimony poisoning. She is the mother-in-law of Edward William Pritchard, a British physician, and when the doctor's wife dies under similar circumstances, three weeks later, he is arrested and put on trial. Dr. Pritchard, who was also suspected of killing a servant in 1963, was convicted of these two murders and hanged in Glasgow before the year was out.

Yep didn't take a lot to be treason back then.
