For those who are not familiar with the story, according to Wikipedia, in August of 1892, Lizzie allegedly used an axe to kill her father and stepmother. While she was arrested and put on trial, Lizzie was acquitted.
And, on the off chance you've never heard the rhyme, it goes:
Lizzie Borden took an axe,And gave her mother forty whacks; When she saw what she had done,She gave her father forty-one.
