Oliver Saxby QC and Peter Alcock secure attempted murder acquittalTweet
A jury today acquitted Jordan Barringer of the offence of attempted murder after a 9-day trial. Barringer, a young man with serious learning difficulties who had the assistance of an intermediary at trial, was accused of trying to kill a pizza delivery driver who he had stabbed 6 times, 3 times to the stomach and 3 times to the back. He denied an intent to kill and expert psychiatric evidence – in the form of Dr Philip Joseph (who was originally instructed on behalf of the Crown) – was called on his behalf on the question of his capacity to form so specific an intent as an intent to kill.
