    Michael’s first ever case as Leading Counsel defending in a murder was a front-page reported dismemberment trial at the Old Bailey, back in 1985. Nicholas Boyce had killed his wife, Christabel, and chopped and cooked her remains before disposing of her head in the River Thames at Hungerford Bridge. The defence sought a provocation manslaughter verdict.  He was acquitted of murder after a jury retirement of less than an hour.
