Murder & Homicide Solicitors
Murder matters often involve a variety of different evidence and very certain rules apply to bail. Given that murder is a specific intent offence requiring a legal concept called malice aforethought there are often issues arising as to whether or not there is actually a murder that has taken place or rather a separate offence.
Again, these cases can involve multi-handed defendants and be extremely paper-heavy, focusing on the defendant’s whereabouts and activities before and after an alleged murder having taken place. In a world where the populations lives have become inextricably linked to their mobile phones, there will often be the presentation of data and complex cell cite maps detailing locations of Defendants all of which needs to be assessed and often requires expert defence evidence.
Sometimes, but not always they will entail a necessary application for a QC (Queen’s counsel).
Matters that may be relevant to these cases may include, but are not limited to:
- Cell site evidence
- Mobile phone data
- Admissibility of evidence presented
- Bad character evidence
