Second Lieutenant Wilson's Evidence In Court Cases

Decent Essays

Due to his injuries, Second Lieutenant Wilson was unable to attend court to give evidence. Upon learning of this, the jury informed the Coroner that based on the evidence that had been presented so far, they felt there would be no need for an adjournment to hear the Lieutenant’s evidence. Having retired briefly to consider the facts, they reconvened, returning a verdict of ‘Accidental Death.’
In his summing up of the evidence, the Coroner offered his sympathies to the relatives of the two airmen and all those associated with them and said that the jury could not have come to any other conclusion and that his thoughts were with Second Lieutenant Wilson.
