The year is 1638. The place is Providence, Rhode Island. The scene: a brutal murder of a young native man. That murder sparked a dramatic manhunt, and eventually a trial — one that may have helped shaped our legal system since, or so argues author and historian Tobey Pearl, in her new book: "Terror To The Wicked: America's First Trial By Jury That Ended A War And Helped Form A Nation."
