Practice and Procedure

R V ALAN RAY (2002)

PUBLISHED January 23, 2002

[2002] EWCA Crim 84

In an unsuccessful appeal against conviction for murder and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, the trial judge had correctly declined to sever the charges against the appellant and his co-accused, had been entitled to refuse to discharge the jury when the co-accused was acquitted and had been right to conclude that there was a case for the appellant to answer.
