Following legal submissions by the defence at the close of the Crown’s case, the count of unlawful act manslaughter has been withdrawn from the jury in R v Bowler and Connor in which John O’Higgins and Oliver Saxby QC are defending, the case involving the death of a man called Alun Williams following a ‘kinky sex session’.
A single count of gross negligence manslaughter remains, as the first defendant commences his case.
The jury is expected to retire some time next week.
