Will I Have a Defence?

There are a number of partial defences available to you under the Queensland Criminal Code:

Killing on Provocation

This defence may apply in circumstances where the death is done in the heat of passion caused by sudden provocation, before there is time for the persons passion to subside.

Diminished Responsibility

This defence may apply in circumstances where a person murders another and the act which causes death is done when the accused is in such a state of abnormality of mind that impairs their capacity to understand what they are doing, or to control their actions, or to know that they ought not to do the act.

Killing in an Abusive Relationship.

This defence may apply if a person murders and the deceased has committed serious domestic violence on that person in the course of a relationship, and that person believes that their actions were necessary to preserve their life.
