Michael Mather-Lees QC and Colin Witcher begin unusual murder trial

Mr Mather-Lees QC and Colin Witcher have begun an unusual and sensitive murder trial, which concerns the death of a victim four years after the initial injuries were sustained. The trial will focus upon intention and causation, and whether or not the manner of medical treatment was the cause of death, with evidence covering neuro-patholology, pathology, clinical care and gastroenterology.

The case is being tried before Mr Justice Johnson and is expected to last two weeks. Given the abolishment of the Year-and-a-Day Rule, the case is prosecuted with the consent of the Attorney General.

Counsel are instructed by Imran Ali of Tuckers Solicitors.
