UNEXPECTED DEVELOPMENTS. MRS MAYBRICK’S EXPLANATIONS. [By Electric Telegraph.—Copyright. [Per Press Association.] LONDON, August 5. The trial of Mrs Maybrick for poisoning her husband at Liverpool has taken on unexpected turn. The official analyst of the Home Office states that Mr Maybrick’s death was not caused by arsenic, but was the result of gastro enteritis. Mrs Maybrick asserts that she purchased the fly papers which were found in her husband’s room for the purpose ef making face wash. The night before his death her husband implored her to give him a powder, but she refused, until ho declared that it would do no harm if taken in his food. She then placed some in a tin of meat juice. Her husband was asleep when she returned, and never tasted the contents of the tin. Mrs Maybrick declared that she never knew that the powder contained arsenic until after her husband’s death.
