At his trial in Melbourne, Ned appeared before Sir Redmond Barry, the same man who sentenced his mother to three years imprisonment. Judge Barry sentenced Ned to death by hanging. Ned told him that they would soon meet in a fairer court in the sky and that he would meet him there where he goes. Twelve days after Ned's death, Sir Redmond Barry passed away.

Scene of Ned Kelly's Hanging

Over sixty thousand people signed a petition to have Ned’s sentence reprieved, but the Executive Council would not be swayed from executing the bushranger. So at 10 o'clock on the 11th November 1880, Ned was taken to the gallows at the Old Melbourne Gaol. His last words before he was executed were, "I guess it has come to this." and shortly after "Such is Life."
