Charlotte Daily Observer 1903 10 Jan 1903 Elizabeth City, Jan. 9 - James E. Wilcox lies in a strange cell tonight. He was taken to Hertford, the scene of his new trail, today. His removal was guarded with the utmost caution. The authorities carried him in a closed carriage to the outskirts of the city and by pre-arrangement with the railroad authorities, spirited him away from the city. Every movement was guarded and several hours elapsed before the removal became known to the public. This will be the second trial of Wilcox, he having been convicted at the first trial of the murder of Miss Nellie Cropsey, a young woman on whom he called one night and of whom not a trace was found from the time she was last seen with young Wilcox until her dead body was found in the river near her home.
