《杀妻者》

Library Resources
1 杀妻者:
闻诸耆旧云:昔有人因他适回,见其妻为奸盗所杀。但不见其首,支体具在。既悲且惧,遂告于妻族。妻族闻之。遂执壻而入官丞。行加诬云:尔杀吾爱女。狱吏严其鞭捶,莫得自明,洎不任其苦,乃自诬杀人,甘其一死。款案既成,皆以为不缪。郡主委诸从事。从事疑疑原作款,据明钞本改。而不断。谓使君曰。某滥尘幕席,诚宜竭节。奉理人命,一死不可再生。苟或悞举典刑。岂能追悔也。必请缓而穷之。且为夫之道,孰忍杀妻。况义在齐眉,曷能断颈。纵有隙而害之,盍作脱祸之计也。或推病殒,或托暴亡,必存尸而弃首,其理甚明。使君许其谳义。从事乃别开其第,权作狴牢。慎择司存,移此系者,细而劾之,仍给以酒食汤沐,以平人待之。键户棘垣,不使系于外。然后遍勘在城伍作行人,令各供通。近来应与人家安厝坟墓多少去处文状。既而一面诘之曰。汝等与人家举事,还有可疑者乎。有一人曰。某于一豪家举事。共言杀却一奶子。于墙上舁过,凶器中甚似无物,见在某坊。发之,果得一女首级。遂将首对尸,令诉者验认。云。非也。遂收豪家鞠之,豪家伏辜而具款。乃是杀一奶子,函首而葬之,以尸易此良家之妇,私室蓄之。豪土乃全家弃巿。吁。伍辞察狱,得无慎乎。出《玉堂闲话》
