Murder, self defence, defensive homicide? Impacts of gender and relationship

thesis
posted on 2010-01-01, 00:00 authored by T'Meika Knapp
Research focussed on recent amendments to Victorian homicide defence legislation, investigating community decisions in cases where a fatality followed an alleged sexual assualt. Findings suggest that legislation may not match community sentiment and jurors require comprehensive instructions. Further, relationship history, accused, deceased and juror gender have an impact on verdict.
