The King vs Greenwell

Henry Nicholas Greenwell was indicted for murder in the Second Degree.  “(A) Chinaman (Salai) had run away … and the Chinaman was down and Mr Greenwell was beating him with his fists.”  He died.

The matter was handed over to the jury. “The jury after an absence of half an hour returned a unanimous verdict of not guilty.”  (Hawaiʻi Reports; Supreme Court, 1853)
