R v Clinton (Jon-Jacques) Reported case [2012] EWCA Crim 2 – Reading Crown Court 2012

Represented defendant accused of murdering his wife after he was subjected to numerous taunts, including suggestions of infidelity. The defendant was represented by another firm and convicted after raising a new partial defence of ‘loss of control’ which was withdrawn from the jury by a Judge. ABV Solicitors took over conduct for the appeal when the conviction was quashed and the court of appeal ordered a re-trial. The client subsequently pleaded to murder before the re-trial and received a reduced sentence. The case is now the leading authority on “loss of control” in murder cases.
