Case Study

Girlfriend's murder


In the intricate maze of the legal world, each case presents its unique set of challenges and narratives. One such case taken up by KLG Barristers and Solicitors emerged as a distressing reminder of the complexities surrounding human relationships and the unpredictability of emotions. This trial, which centered around a man accused of killing his girlfriend, not only showcased the profound professional expertise of our team but also underscored the importance of understanding the human element in legal proceedings.

Note: While the essence of these legal battles remains accurate, specific details have been sufficiently altered to maintain anonymity.


Our client, a man who shared child with the deceased, found himself in the eye of a storm. The proof painted a picture of a clear-cut crime. The evidence stacked against him seemed unbeatable. Eyewitness accounts, forensic findings, and a timeline that placed our client at the scene made many consider his conviction a foregone conclusion. However, as with many legal cases, the surface details only told a fraction of the story. Beneath the headlines and initial perceptions lay a tangled web of personal relationships, emotions, and potential provocations that needed unraveling.


The primary evidence against our client was the data from the black box, which suggested excessive speed. This was further corroborated by video footage, through which the Crown's expert attempted to approximate the speed of our client's vehicle. With these two formidable pieces of evidence, the task was to dismantle the narrative of dangerous speeding presented by the prosecution.

Our team meticulously examined the evidence collection process and identified a gap: the black box data had been procured without a proper warrant. We launched a charter challenge, asserting the illegal nature of this evidence collection. This challenge was successful, leading to the exclusion of the black box data from the trial.

To address the video evidence, we turned to an expert in defence. This expert analyzed the speed patterns of other drivers at the time of the accident, revealing a trend: most vehicles were exceeding the speed limit. This context suggested that our client’s driving was in line with the prevailing traffic conditions and was not anomalously dangerous.

Armed with a successful challenge to the black box evidence and a fresh perspective on the driving conditions, the scales of justice tilted in our favour. His actions on the road were viewed within the broader context of the traffic patterns at that time. Consequently, our client was acquitted, highlighting KLG Barristers and Solicitors' dedication to diligent defense and the pursuit of justice.
