Fay Le Gault seated, holding a cigarette in one hand and touching her face with the other, while an unidentified man smoking a cigarette hovers over her and an unidentified woman sits beside her. They appear to be in a courtroom. In the background are people seated in the gallery. In the foreground is a chalkboard. This photograph was probably taken on February 27, 1935 at a coroner's inquest into the murder of Le Gault's husband. The jury recommended that Le Gault be held for trial.
