I wouldn't call this a short story; it is more an account of a historical event (a murder), told with social commentary (somewhat snarky) and utilizing newspaper accounts of the day. The wife and children of a horrible man murdered him in the 16th century and were put on trial for their lives. It's mildly interesting.
