R v Carey [2006]

Facts

  • The victim was threatened by some gang members, and ran away
  • During the running away, the victim suffered a fatal heart attack

Issue

  • Were the gang members guilty of unlawful act manslaughter?

Decision

  • No

Reasoning

  • The threats were not unlawful
  • The victim was not escaping, merely exiting at speed, not as a result of the threats
  • The threats therefore did not cause the victim’s death
