K J M v The Queen [2011] VSCA 151 (18 May 2011)

http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/cases/vic/VSCA/2011/151.html

CRIMINAL LAW – Appeal – Interlocutory appeal – Murder – Victim was domestic partner – Self-defence raised – Accused’s state of mind in issue – Whether evidence of alleged violence against former partner admissible as tendency evidence – Preliminary ruling on admissibility by trial judge – Evidence untested – Defence proposing to challenge evidence on voir dire – No final decision by trial judge on admissibility – Application premature.
