In 1944 Lena was a forty-four year old black woman in Cuthbert, GA who was supposedly having an affair with Earnest Knight, a 67 year old white man.

The jury was comprised of all white men. The jury deliberated for thirty minutes and found her guilty. There were no objections made at her trial and it was never established what kind of gun was used or who it actually belonged to. She should have probably been found guilty of manslaughter and gotten fifteen years. But because she had killed a white man, and not even a very honorable white man, she was given the death sentence.

In a trial the very next day and at the same courthouse, but involving two black men with one killing the other with an ax, the man was tried and found guilty of manslaughter.
