Strangulation trial – Oliver Saxby QC and Thomas Stern defending

September 1, 2020

The trial of a man accused of murdering his partner got underway at Maidstone Crown Court last week. Benjamin Bowler is said to have killed Kelly Price by grabbing her round the throat during an argument, intent at least on causing her really serious harm. The case involves expert pathological evidence on the issue of neck compression. The trial will continue this week.

Oliver Saxby QC and Thomas Stern are instructed by Paul Ruse of Bassets Solicitors
