Birth: unknown
Death: Sep. 4, 1896
Sacramento County
California, USA

On April 13, 1896, at Latrobe, El Dorado County, Roberts quite cold bloodily murdered Walter Freeman by cutting his throat because Freeman had tripped him after an argument at a bar. The following month Roberts was tried and convicted, with his execution by hanging occurring at Folsom State Prison a few months later. It was reported that he showed very little outward emotion at the execution.
