MOTIVE IN CRIME - Significance Of

1.What is the significance of MOTIVE in a crime?

3.Can a trial be conducted without spelling out the motive in the crime by the prosecution?


There is no straight jacket formula. In cases of circumstantial evidence, the motive is important. You have to refer the defination of criminal act to find out if motive has significance. If one kill a person it is called Homicide but ifhehas no intention to kill a person he will be given lesser punishment and will not be held guilty for murder.
