Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.

How can I help?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need cases of a murder been comitted in the course of a robbery which eventually got dropped to manslaughter

I'm afraid that citations won't reveal that.

All cases reveal is the point of appeal either against sentence of conviction.

Sometimes they talk about the charge obviously but the don't reveal details of the charging decision per se.

If you give me more information though then I may be able to help with what would or would not be a manslaughter.

Have you got any cases without joint enterprise
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Also can i have appeal cases of robbery and murder which either got quashed retried , or got dropped to manslaughter please Thank you

Those were the only two I found on a search of the whole of west law of terms "murder" and "robbery" within that.

That is not to say there won't be loads of others but they just haven't been appealed.

I will try on bailii in the morning? Is that any good?

Hi Just wondering if you found anything on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Bailii is useless but I found this Scottish authority on Westlaw.

Did you get it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I got that one

It is only persausive authority.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there anything on murder appeal being acquitted or quashed please

No but then there wouldn't be because people who are acquitted never appeal.

Hi there could you give me
R V Early & ORS
Please thank you

Do you have the citations?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I don't sorry

I can't find cases without citations I'm afraid.

A search of westlaw for powell calls up 12000 plus cases. Even if I use a keyword of "murder" there are still 500 of them.

Sorry but it isn't just the name with cases.

Unless it is a really well know case.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The only information I have on R V POWELL and ENGLISH is about murder and it was the year 1997 and R V EARLY and others is 2002 or 2003

Im very sorry but you cant find cases without citations.

I did try searching with keywords but it just doesn't call up one single case.
