SODDI Defense

An interesting variation on the SODDI (Some Other Dude Did It) defense:
Defence lawyer Yariv Ronen said the soldier should be acquitted of a manslaughter charge because Hurndall "did not die from the wound but because the doctors, together with the family, made a very clear decision to end his life". Ronen said the doctors denied Hurndall antibiotic treatment and gave him an overdose of morphine.
