Giles Corey was pressed to death under heavy rocks for refusing to stand trial for witchcraft.

Next

During the witch trials in Salem, one victim of the Salem witch hunt was not hanged, but rather pressed under heavy stones until his death. Such was the fate of Giles Corey who, after spending five months in chains in a Salem jail with his also accused wife, had nothing but contempt for the proceedings. Seeing the futility of a trial and hoping that by avoiding a conviction his farm, that would otherwise go the state, might go to his two sons-in-law, Corey refused to stand for trial. The penalty for such a refusal was being pressed with rocks. Three days after Corey's death, on September 22, 1692, eight more convicted witches, including Giles' wife Martha, were hanged. They were the last victims of the witch hunt.
