ADMISSION OF EVIDENCE OF VIOLENCE AND JUDGE’S DIRECTION DID NOT RENDER CONVICTION UNSAFE

Where a jury convicted an appellant for murder after having been directed as to the law on provocation in accordance with a precedent which was wider than the one that superseded it, it was inconceivable that the same jury would have come to any other conclusion had they been directed on the law of provocation in accordance with the subsequent tighter definition.
