Death of Edith Alice Morrell Morrell was a wealthy widow who suffered a stroke on 24 June while visiting her son in Cheshire. She was partially paralysed and was admitted to a hospital near Chesterwhere she received morphine injections for nine days from 27 June, prescribed by a Dr Turner.
An expert witness for the prosecution claimed that Mrs Morrell would have become addicted, but the only apparent symptoms of this were attributed by the defence's expert to a second stroke. On her cremation form, Adams stated that "as far as I am aware" he had no pecuniary interest in the death, thereby avoiding the necessity of a post-mortem.
However, he did not ensure that she took both tablets daily and no attempt had been made to retrieve any that had been prescribed to the late Mr Hullett but unused when he died.
On 21 July Dr Shera, a pathologist, was called in to take a spinal fluid sample and immediately asked if her stomach contents should be examined in case of narcotic poisoning. Adams and Harris both opposed this. The coroner asked when the patient had died and Adams said she had not yet.
Adams gave Hullett oxygen. The coroner questioned Adams' treatment and in his summing up said that it was "extraordinary that the doctor, knowing the past history of the patient" did not "at once suspect barbiturate poisoning".
This assertion was published after the deaths of both Hannam and Manningham-Buller. Init was the job of the police to investigate reported crimes, to determine if one had been committed and arrest a suspect.
It was then the job of the Director of Public Prosecutions, or in very serious cases of the Attorney-General or Solicitor-General, to review the police case and decide whether to prosecute and, in more serious cases, what offences to prosecute.
Had the police found two recent cases similar to Mrs Hullett's, where a patient had died of an overdose of pills prescribed by Adams, that might have shown system, but the police found no such cases. While the Concluding paragraph on dangerous driving habits was not found, Scotland Yard suspected the local Deputy Chief Constable of Eastbourne, Seekings, of having misplaced it to help Adams.
Seekings was known to have taken holidays with Adams and Gwynne, and looked after Gwynne's finances while he was in hospital in January Had this been proceeded with, a second committal hearing would have been required.
Three days later, a new Homicide Act came into effect; a single murder by poison became a non- capital offence. Adams, having been indicted on both charges before this date, would still face the death penalty if convicted.
The Home Secretary would be less likely to grant clemency in the case of a second murder conviction in the Hullett case, as this would make it far more difficult politically to sentence Adams to life imprisonmentparticularly as a double murder could still be capital under the Homicide Act, and Devlin considered that the Attorney-General's aim in bringing forward a second indictment was to make it more likely that Adams would hang.
The trial lasted 17 days, the longest murder trial in Britain up to that point. Devlin summed up the tricky nature of the case thus: He emphasised that the indictment was based mainly on testimonies from the nurses who tended Morrell — and that none of the witnesses' evidence matched the others'.
Then, on the second day of the trial, he produced notebooks written by the nurses, detailing Adams' treatment of Morrell. The prosecution claimed never to have seen these notebooks even though they are recorded in pretrial lists of evidence.
Furthermore, the prosecution's two expert medical witnesses gave differing opinions: Arthur Douthwaite was prepared to say that murder had definitely been committed though he changed his mind in the middle of his testimony regarding the exact date but Michael Ashby was more reticent.
Finally, the prosecution was wrong-footed by the defence not calling the loquacious Adams to give evidence, and thereby avoiding him "chatting himself to the gallows ". In the event of Adams being acquitted, Lord Goddard suggested that Devlin might consider an application to release Adams on bail before the Hullett trial, which was due to start afterwards.
Devlin was at first surprised since a person accused of murder had never been given bail before in British legal history, but was willing to entertain the idea and, on consideration, saw its merit as showing strong judicial displeasure over the Attorney-General's plan to proceed with the second indictment.
For example, during the committal hearing for Adams in JanuaryLord Goddardthe Lord Chief Justicewas seen dining with Sir Roland Gwynne Mayor of Eastbourne from to and the Chairman of the local panel of magistrates, and ex- Attorney General Sir Hartley Shawcrossa member of the opposition at an hotel in Lewes.
As Lord Chief Justice, Goddard had a responsibility for the conduct of all courts in England and Wales, from magistrates' courts to the Court of Appeal and the subject of their conversation is unreported and unknown but Cullen mentions the unproven assertion that Gwynne was suspected of being Adams lover as the basis for assuming interference in the trial  Loss of the nurses' notebooks[ edit ] Eight books of records made by nurses who had worked under Adams were recorded in pre-trial police records but disappeared before the trial started,  depriving Manningham-Buller of the chance to familiarise himself with them.
He was presented with only a copy of them by the defence on the second day of the trial. These books were then used by the fully prepared defence to counter the witness statements given the nurses who had originally written the notes. Comments in the witness statements which were prejudicial to Adams were disproved by reference to their contemporaneous notes.
Six years after the event, the notes could be said to be more reliable than the nurses' own memories. However, Devlin noted the witness statements that supported Hannam's theories were taken by Hannam and his team, and that doing this accurately may have been beyond Hannam's powers.
He also failed to ask for an adjournment to acquaint himself with the new evidence — despite the fact that the judge would have been sure to grant it.Because of the dangerous driving habits of the people, the aspect that is innovated to become the aid for the development of the society is posing a dangerous nature for the safety and the property of the people.
