B and M fighting. B hit M on head. M died
Did trial judge misdirect the jury when he said that B should have only used no more force then necessary under s.34(2)? – YES - THIS WAS WRONG
Objective-Subjective test for self-defence under 34(1) and 34(2): It is not a standard of a person standing outside the defence – one has to take into account the state of mind of the accused
**Not proportionality requirement for 34(2) but there is in 34(1)
34(1) requires proportionality, and intention to cause death or grievous bodily harm.
34(2) when there is an intention, and requirement to proportionality, but must have reasonable apprehension of death or grievous bodily harm and a reasonable belief that he could not otherwise prevent himself from death or grievous bodily harm
In contradiction with Pawliuk
