    Abstract

    An important exhibit at a double murder trial was a 0.22-caliber, long-rifle, rim-fire cartridge case, which was found on microscopic examination to have been fired in the 0.22 pump-action rifle belonging to the accused. It was found at the scene, more than 18 weeks after the murders, buried approximately 50 mm below the surface of a garden.
