Harmindar Singh Dhaliwal FCJ:

[1] This appeal revolves around a tragic event which culminated in the separation by death of a couple who had been together for 35 years. That fateful day was 26 November 2016. A 61 year old American woman, Guilda Mickelson ("the deceased"), was found dead in a hotel room in Kuala Lumpur. Her death was reported by her ex-husband, 61 year old American, Mickelson Gerald Wayne ("the appellant"). The appellant was in the same hotel room at the time of her death. He claimed that he had killed the deceased in self-defence. The appellant was, however, arrested and charged with her murder under s 302 ("s 302") of the Penal Code ("PC").

[2] The appellant claimed trial at the High Court, Kuala Lumpur. At the end of the trial, the learned trial Judge found the appellant guilty of the offence of murder under s 302 PC. He was convicted and sentenced to death. He was unsuccessful in his appeal to the Court of Appeal. The Court dismissed his appeal and affirmed the conviction and sentence passed by the High Court.
