[2013] EWCA Crim 2521

Where an appellant had not given evidence at her trial, there was no evidence on which a reasonable jury could have concluded that there might have been provocation by the victim or consequential loss of control by the appellant before a fatal stabbing. A suggested defence of provocation was therefore mere speculation.

CA (Crim Div) (Jackson LJ, Holroyde J, Judge Milford QC)
