(CRIMINAL JURISDICTION)

ON APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME COURT OF THE WINDWARD
ISLANDS AND LEEWARD ISLANDS

BETWEEN:
MELVIN HAYNES, ALFRED FOSTER i Apellants
ROY MOSES AND CADMAN HAYNES
and
THE QUEEN Respoindent

BEFORE:- DATE, C.J. (Acting). CHRISTIAN AND LEWIS, J.J. (Acting)
Mr. A. RADIX for Appellants.
Acting Crown Attorney (Mr. B. DIAS) for Respondent.

JUDGMENT
The four appellants were convicted on the 30th. April, 1955 on a charge of
murdering Aubrey Hamilton otherwise known as "Sykie" at King aown in the
Colony of Saint Vincent. Against this conviction each has appealed on the
following grounds:-
"(1) That the summing up to the jury by the learned trial Judge was
inadequate and inaccurate and that he failed or omitted to deal with,
comment on, and direct the minds of the jurors to material evidence of the
case.
"(2) That the trial Judge otherwise failed to direct or misdirected the
jury on material points of law and facts of the case.
"(3)Y That the verdict was unreasonable and having regard to the
evidence cannot be sustained.
"(4) That there was insufficient or no evidence of any common design in
the commission of the felony (murder) and as such error was committed when
four defendants were found guilty of it inasmuch as it could not be determined
with any or sufficient certainty which of the four defendants or even others
not charged inflicted the fatal wound or wounds.
"(5) That the decision was otherwise wrong on points of law."
The four appeals were heard together.
The facts of the case were as follows:-
On the afternoon of the 22nd. February, 1955, Carnival Tuesday, there was
a fete in progress at the Lyric Theatre in Kingstown, where Hamilton was
employed as a "chucker-out", to maintain order and to prevent 1:eople from
entering the grounds without paying. At about 6.45 p.m. Melvin Haynes was
seen hanging over the wall which enclosed the grounds, looking in. Hamilton
told him to get off the wall. He went down but returned with a stone which
he threw at Hamilton. Hamilton left the grounds and pushed or "chucked"
Haynes away. They got into a scuffle and were parted by one. George Anthony.
About ten to fifteen, minutes later Melvin Haynes returned to the I theatre gate
with four or five other young men. Hamilton went into the street to meet
them. He was then carrying a piece of wood about fourteen inches long
described as a carnival sword. Melvin Haynes pointed at Hamilton and said
"you hit me and I am not taking it". He and his companions surrounded
Hamilton who tried to keep them off with his "sword". They backed him up
the road which is on an incline until they came to a fairly dark spot. A bottle
was then heard to break. Hamilton was heard to say "you see what all you
do me, alright then", and the lads rushed away up the hill. Hamilton came
down the road, showed his chest to a number of persons and was seen to be
bleeding. After walking for some distance in the direction of the Police
Station he collapsed. He was taken to -he Hospital where he died shortly
afterwards. The medical evidence revealed that death was due to haemor-
rhage following two 'punctured wounds of the right ventricle of the heart
and that these wounds could have been caused by a two-edged pointed instru-
nienit of a dagger type.
On the following day the four appellants were taken into custody, and at
an identification parade they were identified by various persons, witnesses at
the trial, as the persons who had attacked Aubrey Hamilton outside the Theatre.
At -the trial Melvin Haynes and Alfred Foster were also identified by' one Denzil














342 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 25 OCTOBER, 1955.-(No. 59).


Wilkins, while the two Haynes brothers, Melvin and Cadman, were identified
by Raymond Spence; neither of these witnesses was at the identification parade.
All of the four appellants, were also identified at the trial by Clifford Boucher
who swore positively that he had known them well for some years, that they
had passed close to him on their way to the scene of the incident and that he
had overheard Moses say: "come on quick man, if you don't klnow how the
man beat him up"; and had heard Melvin ask Cadman if he had the knife.
The case for the prosecution was thac the four appellants having a common
design to inflict serious injury upon Hamilton had attacked him and that in
the course of the attack one of them had inflicted the fatal blows. Melvin
Haynes and Roy Moses admitted that they had been involved in the affray
with Hamilton, Moses being, then armed with a. knife and Melvin H- ynes with
an ice pick, but pleaded that the blows ha.d been inflicted with tne knife by
one or other of them in self defence. Cadman Haynes and Alfred foster each
pleaded an alibi, and each called two witnesses in support thereof.
It was contended by iCounsel for the appellants that the verdict was un-
reasonable having regard to the evidence with respect to all four of the
appellants (Ground 3). So fsr as the defence of alibi was concerned, the
point was of course argued only with respect to the appellants Cadman Haynes
and Alfred Foster. His submission in short was that having regard to the rela-
tive weakness of the evidence of identification and. the strength of the evidence
in support of the alibi the verdict shouldd have been in favour of these two appel-
lants. To support his submission he referred to the fact that all the witnesses
who placed Foster and Cadman Haynes avi the scene were strangers to them,
and that in the case of at least one of these witnesses, Denzil Wilkins, he had
had no opportunity of identifying them until they were in the dock. He also
referred to the time and place of the incident, around 7 p.m. ?.nd in a dark
spot-circumstances which would render identification difficult. He drew
attention to the statements made by the other two appellants, Melvin Haynes
and Roy Moses, while in prison, in which they stated that neither Foster nor
Cadman Haynes had taken part in the affray which Hamilton, as well as to
Foster and Cadman Haynes's own statements made on the 2?rd February,
the day after the incident, giving an account of their movements at the material
time. He submitted that the evidence of the appellants as to the elibi was fully
supported by the witnesses called on their behalf, and that having regard to the
circumstances of the identification it was unreasonable for the july to reject
the alibi.
The Court has carefully considered this submission and we are of opinion
that there was ample evidence on which the jury could properly come to the
conclusion that both appellants Alfred Fostei and Cadman Haynes were present
with the others at the time of the attack upon Hamilton. Cadman Haynes was
identified by the witnesses Belle White and Raymond Spence, while Alfred
Foster was identified by Gwendolyn Warner and Belle White. In addition, there
was the positive evidence of Clifford Boucher who knew them well and had seen
them at a time when they must have been on their way to the scene. The jury
had before them a previous statement made by Roy Moses shortly after his
arrest in which he placed Cadman Haynes on the scene of the incident and as
taking part in it; and this, no doubt, considerably weakened the ?efect of his
subsequent statement that they were not there at all.
This Court has on more than one occasion drawn attention to the prin-
ciples upon which a Court of Appeal will quash a conviction or- the ground
that it i unreasonable or cannot be supported having regard to the evidence,
and has pointed out that once there is evidence to support the conviction it
will not be quashed on this ground; the verdict must be such that no reasonable
jury could properly find upon the evidence given. We desire to -epeat what
was said in the case of HUGHES (St. Kitts, 1949) : While the Coart can and
will quash a conviction if it thinks that the verdict of the jury should be set
aside on the ground that it is unreasonable and cannot be supported, having
regard to the evidence, yet, so great is the respect paid by the Cour-t to "trial
by jury", that seldom is the verdict of a jury set aside and a conviction quashed
on .the ground that, upon the evidence properly given at the trial, the verdict
was unreasonable or insupportable. Even if the appellant is .able to establish
that when the evidence given for him is set against the evidence given against
him there is a balance in his favour, this will not be sufficient ground for setting
aside the verdict of the jury. Nor will it avail him anything, once there is
evidence to go to the jury, that the Judges of the Court of Appeal consider the
case for the prosecution "an extraordinary one", or "not a strong one", or that
"the evidence as a whole presents some points of difficulty", or that the Judges
doubt whether, had they taken the place of the jury, they would have returned
the same verdict. The verdict of the jury must be so much against the weight
of the evidence as to be unreasonable or insupportable or it will not be set aside.
The jury are pre-eminently judges of the facts to be deduced from evidence

properly presented to them, and it was not intended by the Criminal Appeal
Act, nor is it within the functions of a Court composedas the Coart of Appeal
is, that such cases should be practically te-tried before the Court; this would
lead to substitution of the opinion of the Court for the verdict of .he jury.
In the circumstances of the instant case it was for the jury, who had all
the facts before them, to accept or reject the alibi and the, evidence of idenli-
fication. and we do not consider that their finding on. this point w,.as unreason-
able or insupportable.
It was also submitted by Counsel for "he appellants that there was insuffi-
cient or no evidence of any common design to commit felonious violence on the
part of the four defendants or any of them (Ground 4). He contended that
the knowledge of the common design must be brought home to each appellant.
He referred to Roscoe's Criminal Evidence, (16th. ed.) p. 766:
If it is uncertain which is guilty all must be acquitted ",
and said that there was no evidence to support the finding of common design
against any of the appellants.
The law with respect to common design in so far as it applies to homicide
is well stated in Halsbury's Laws of Englard, (3rd. ed.) Vol. 10, p. 715, para.
1370:
Where several persons are engaged i, a common design and another per-
son is killed, whether intentionally or unintentionally, by an act of one
of them done in prosecution of the common design, the ot1:ers present
are guilty of murder, if the common design was to commit murder, or
to inflict felonious violence, or to commit any breach of the peace and
violently to resist all opposers. If the common design was merely to.
commit an unlawful act involving violence, the others are guilty of man-
slaughter only ".
In Russell on Crime, (10th. ed.) Vol. 2, p. 1855, the following statement appears:
It is submitted that the true rule of law is, that where several persons,
engage in the pursuit of a common unlawful object, and one of them does
an act which the others ought to have known was not improbable to happen
in the course of pursuing such common unlawful object, all are guilty".
See also R. v. Pridmore (1913). 8 Cr. App. R 198; R. v Betts and Ridley (1930)
144 L.T. 526; 22 Cr. App. R. 170.
In the instant case, both Melvin Haynes and Roy Moses- admitted that they
engaged in the affray with Aubrey Hamilton, one being armed with a knife anti
the other with an ice pick. There was the evidence of Clifford 1.:oucher who
testified to the conversation already mentioned.. There was also the evidence
of Denzil Wilkins that Foster was armed with a bottle while other witnesses
gave evidence that bottles were thrown and that some of the appellants carried
stones. From this evidence, namely,- that the appellants went together to the
Theatre gate variously armed with knife, ice pick, stones and bottles, that
Melvin Haynes pointed out Hamilton to the others aA the man who had hit
him, that they attacked and surrounded Hamilton, backed him LW the hill
to a dark spot, that Foster passed a bottle to one of the others, and that in
the affray one or more of them wounded him in the chest, on the right wrist
and near the left collar-bone the Court is of opinion that there was ample
evidence upon which the jury, if they believed it, could find that the appel-
lants acted together in a common design to use felonious violence upon
Hamilton. We are satisfied that on this point the law was clearly and care-
fully explained to the jury by the learned trial Judge and the evidence fairly
and adequately put to them. We consider therefore that there is no subl
stance in this ground of appeal.
The third submission made by learned Counsel for the appellants was
that the learned trial Judge either misdirected or failed to direct the jury,
upon material matters of fact.
It was said that the learned trial Judge failed to point out to the jury
the unsatisfactory nature of the evidence of identification, and in particular
(a) that it was dark;
(b) that the identification was by persons who were strangers to. the
appellants;
(c) that in thq case of Spence he was a boy of only twelve years of age,
and oi a wayward character; and that there were two important
discrepancies in his evidence, as to the manner in which the incident
occurred, and the colour of the knife which he described; and
(d) that in the case of Wilkins there was no opportunity to identify
the appellants until they were m the dock.















344 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 25 (OCTOBER, ]955.-No. 59).


The learned Judgo dealt at some length with the evidence of identification.
It is true that he'did not offer any criticisms upon the evidence of each individual
witness, but he gave the jury, the gist of their evidence, and reminded them of
the need for caution in accepting the evidence of identification. He told the jury:'
If you believe the prosecution witnesseE-and you have to bear in mind
that the light and the circumstances: a crowded street, on Carnival
Tuesday, between 6.30-7 p.m., were :such that *ne witnesses could easily
have made a mistake-you will consider their c.?se alor:g with the others.
If you believed the defence story tiat they were not there you must acquit
them. Finally in so far as Foster a d Cadmiaj Hlyi;ue are concerned,
if you are in any doubt as to whether they were present or not as I
outlined earlier you will resolve that doubt in favour of these two
accused ".
Counsel for the. defence had just addressed the jury and had C'rawn their
attention to the alleged weaknesses in the evidence of identification contrasting
it with the positive evidence in support of the .alibi. As was .aid in the) case of
ROBERTS (1942) 1 ALl E. R, 187, at p. 190:
It is incredible that they could have forgotten them or that they could
have misunderstood the matter "i an-. way, or thought, cy reason of the
fact that the judge did not think it necessary to refer to them, that they
were not to pay attention to them. We do not think there is anything
in that point at all".
It was also submitted that the learned Judge failed to deal adequately and
in detail with the defence alibi. It was raid that he should have dealt in
greater detail than he in, fact did with the evidence of the appellants Cadman
Madynes and Alfred Foster and should have drawn their attention to the details
of the evidence of the witnesses called for the defence.
The learned Judge gave the jury a general outline of the alibi, which was
contained in the statements made to the police by the two appel'bants and in
tileir evidence at the trial, and made reference to the witnesses brought in
support of their respective stories, whom, he remiindied them, they had heard
and seen that morning. Later he said:
Yoe have heard the ease for the defence and it is very import nt that
you pay particular attention to the defence of the two pei.ronL Allied Foster
and Cadman Haynes. In doing so you will have to examine the state-
ments-the statements which they made to the Police caoly in the
enquiries-that is, immediately after their arrest. You will have to con-
sider and ask yourselves if you believe their evidence, which was consistent
with their statements, and whether it is a fact that they were not there ".
He further offered to let them havd the statements when they retired.
Although we think tlwat the learned' Judge might have dealt in detail with
the evidence of the witnesses for the defence, yet bearing in mird 'he circum-
stances to which we have referred in the preceding paragraph and looking at
the summing up as a whole we are of opinion that the' defence of alibi was
sufficiently put before the jury and that his failure to deal in greater detail
with that evidence cannot be said to render the summing up so inadequate
as to amount to a misdirection.
A similar comment may be made with respect to the other criticisms of
the summing up advanced by Counsel for the appellants. His complaint in
substance was .that a number of comments on the evidence maoe by him in
the course of his address at the trial were not put specifically by the learned
Judge to the jury. It was,, of, course, not at all necessary that this should be
done. As was said .by Lord Goddard in LURIE (1951) 35 Cr. App. R. 113, at
p. 119:
"We have said, over and over again that what is required is that the case
for the prosecution and the case for the defence should be fairly stated
'- and the proper direction in law should be given by the presiding Judge,
and that he is not bound to put every point".
In our opinion the fact that the learned Judge did not mention the matters
to which Counsel alluded could not in' any way have affected the> verdict.
The appeals are accordingly dismissed, and the convictions affirmed.
