Charles Lawrence denied this story, he tried to protect Mize and was nowhere near the cart or McCarty when Padilla shot him.
Even though the jury heard much conflicting evidence, the members found Lawrence guilty of murder in the first degree. After the Lawrence verdict, Morano tried to save his half-brother by claiming he, not Lawrence, shot McCarty. Instead, a judge sentenced Morano to seventeen years in prison. After receiving a death sentence himself for the murder, Padilla secured a new trial. Five days after Folsom executed Lawrence on October 7, 1904, Padilla was sentenced to life in prison.
On 7 Oct 1904 at 10:17 in the morning Charles Lawrence swang from the gallows of Folsom Prison it took him 11 minutes and 10 seconds to die. He is buried in the Folsom Prison Cemetery. Here is the Find A Grave link to his memorial.
The only thing on his gravestone is 5308 his inmate number. I did not find very much genealogy information except Charles was born about 1878 in California and his brother Augustine was born about 1886 also in California.
I really would like to know what happened to Augustine when he left prison in 1913. I am still researching so I will do an update on this when I get more information. I made him a tree on Ancestry, it's the only one.
