See if you can access the "17th and 18th Century Burney Collection Newspapers" online through your local library or join one with access to the collection.

They seem to have lots of reports on the case (though it is likely many are copies of each other).

They were executed on 4th December at Tyburn, some went for dissection.

It has to be remembered that hangings were commonplace then and the reporting of crimes like this would be very much on the side of the victims of the crime.

I think there are some websites that document executions but don't know whether they will have found any more out. They do not seem to be on the Old Bailey Online website so presume not tried there.
