[2010] EWCA Crim 2159

At a murder trial of a defendant who suffered from alcohol dependency syndrome, the judge had not erred in allowing in evidence a psychiatrist's opinion that the syndrome could never constitute an abnormality of mind for the purposes of the Homicide Act 1957 s.2. The psychiatrist had done no more than express a medical opinion which he was perfectly entitled to express, and his evidence had not infringed any rule of law and was not tainted by any bias.

CA (Crim Div) (Moses LJ, Kenneth Parker J, Judge Bevan QC)
