165 years ago today - Apr 2, 1859

Non-Mormon judge convicts three Mormons (two of them policemen) for conspiracy in Parrish familiy's murder. Under immunity two LDS men testify that Springville bishop ordered the killings because the Parrishes were leaving Utah with unpaid tithing. Shot to death, the bodies are left with slit throats as "blood atonement."
