Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • Under Maryland law a witness may not fix the speed of a moving automobile as so much per hour, without having shown some special knowledge which would enable him to speak as an expert.
  • Proof of simple negligence will not support a conviction of manslaughter. Whether the statutory standard "in a grossly negligent manner" has been violated depends upon whether the conduct of the defendant, considering all the factors of the case, was such that it amounted to a wanton or reckless disregard for human life. 
  • The court's function is not to determine whether it would have come to a different conclusion from that of the lower court nor need the court be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt of the appellant's guilt; the court determines whether the lower court was clearly wrong in reaching a verdict of guilty on the evidence.
