Criminal evidence - Expert evidence - Admissibility - Murder - Identification - Expert evidence as to facial mapping - Whether judge erring in admitting evidence.
In the instant case, the judge had been entitled to conclude that the evidence from facial mapping experts was admissible in the defendant's trial for murder where the issue was identification. He had been entitled to conclude that the expert evidence was evidence fit for the jury's consideration, and that the quality of the underlying material had been sufficient to support the prosecution expert's view. Accordingly, the defendant's conviction for murder was not unsafe.
