[46] Some writers have shown themselves over-subtle in their classification of the second class of circumstances, making “a sound was heard” an example of circumstances combined with an act and “a shout was raised” an instance of circumstances attached to an act. As regards subsequent circumstances I may cite accusations such as “You hid yourself, you fled, livid spots and swellings appeared on the corpse.” The counsel for the defence will employ the same divisions of time to discredit the charge which is brought against him.
