[2013] EWCA Crim 1746

The judge in a murder trial had been correct not to leave the partial defence of provocation to the jury. Counsel had agreed that self-defence was the only issue in the case and, in any event, there was no more than a speculative possibility that the defendant might have lost his self-control having been provoked.

CA (Crim Div) (Fulford LJ, Burnett J, Hickinbottom J)
