Margaret was gravely injured during Richter's attack, and he took her left ear as a souvenir. However, Margaret did not die. As she laid bleeding, she believed that she saw a great light and that it was Jesus urging her to live on. When Richter was eventually captured, Margaret was the star witness at his trial, which ultimately had him sent away to a psychiatric hospital.
