I'm already seen as a criminal who deserves to be condemned, because I practice magic. Magic here is illegal. The magic I have scares me. My magic can harm people and I have no control over it.
Before the crime I was a dressmaker. My small size made me more nimble. Whilst the dresses were nice. Money was not coming in. I was worried that I would have to close.
It had seemed that my money worries would come to an end when someone came in and wanted a quote for four dresses. We agreed a price and that they would be delivered.
The dresses were delivered but they kept putting off payment for days. It had become apparent that I would not be paid. I had to take direct action. I went to the address they gave me and demanded my money.
I tried not to get too angry but the rage built and I attacked them. It was fatal and I had killed her. I grabbed my money and ran. I was soon arrested but still I tried to attack the guards.
I was subdued and soon brought to trial. I was condemned for murder under the influence of magic.
