    “the trial simply determined the sort of killing that went on and in this particular case it was determined to be the legal sort of killing”

    Not exactly. The trial simply determined that the sort of killing that went on in this particular case was not proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be the illegal sort of killing. Slight, but significant difference.

      Hi Kirsten,
      Since this wasn’t a legal-centric piece I chose my words for stylistic reasons (avoiding a “not illegal” double negative, etc). I do appreciate the legal precision – in that sense it is, as you said, an important distinction. Thank you for reading and commenting!
