Nicholas Stewart, QC, considers a case which set a legal precedent in 1884. It involved two shipwrecked seamen who killed and ate their cabin boy after several weeks at sea in an open boat. They were accused of murder, but argued that they had only taken the boy's life in order to preserve their own.
