I understand that there's a reasonable suspicion that he MAY be the killer. Therefore, the police should arrest him and charge him for 2nd degree murder (voluntary killing without any design).

He can, at least in the US, appoints himself as his own attorney (representing yourself).

Now, there are lots of ways to at least confirm that he is not a murderer.
First, if there's a way to trace back magic source or somehow verify if a person is the one casting the spell, then he can bring forward his assistant to testify that she casted a spell on his neck tie last night that was designed for self-defense.
Second, as for a prove to show that he is UNABLE to cast a spell, notice how magic can be used both defensively and offensively. This means that it has, to some extent, the ability to take a life of someone else. Notice how even something that's designed for non-murder related purposes (e.g. vehicle) is also regulated if used in a crime activity (e.g. vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving, etc). In addition, something that's SOLELY designed for self-defense / killing (e.g. firearm) is regulated in law. This means that there must be at least one title that solely dedicated to talk a lot about the punishment for crime committed with such items (e.g. armed robbery, negligent discharge, etc). In fact, for firearm alone in the US, there's a whole section, if not more, describing in details what you cannot do. Considering magic, if exists, is at the same level as firearm, it's impossible for it to not be regulated in even one article of the law book. This is a good evidence that magic really does not exist and thus he cannot use what does not exist.

This is like telling someone, "Prove that you don't know the president of Venezuela." Or, "Prove that you can't fly." It's way too easy to just accuse them of pretending not to know the president or just faking not being able to fly. This is so dumb.

Prove that you cant use magic

This is a stupid accusation.

@Booty_Hunter
guilty until proven innocent lol, shouldn't the accuser deliver evidence that he can use magic and not the other way around?

Exactly

Guess this is the final case, it was a good run, one of the better isekais.

Ya'know, from a nationalist standpoint I think the princess is an absurdly capable ruler, but from a globalist standpoint, she's obstructing progress, also, I feel like Shiba could easily continue being a barrister and tell the princess what he knows about modern technology, those two things aren't even close to mutually exclusive, so the way both sides are being framed feels a bit polarized.

ah, classic anime and manga accusations
absolutely baseless but still get people to believe it anyway

His lucky tie got burned, so he must be guilty.

kinda makes since why this got axed it's boring, each case just drag on

It's a bit of both; there's a presumption of guilt, but the cases that make it to court in Japan also tend to (but not necessarily) have a stronger case.

@Booty_Hunter Actually, though I’m not sure how true it is, the whole "guilty until proven innocent" is totally a thing in Japanese court systems, something like a 98% conviction rate, I think.

@ShinSekai the reason he died is cause alcohol, dude cannot resist it.

Still idiotic but this weakeness is consistent.

@Booty_Hunter he is being incriminated here by the princess herself, they are making all the shit up, remember that he was drunk so he doesnt recall anything and all of the proof and witnesses are being made up, he has been technically "already proven guilty" at least in this case. The easiest way to prove innocence is by not being able to use magic at all.

@erogon sent there by God, he probably has a lot of supporters.

if this wants to pretend to be an attorney manga, shouldn't at least the basic stuff, everybody knows, be right?

the manga can't even get basic stuff right, the cases themselves are rather bland as well as the characters, and no subplot to make up for it.
i can see why this was axed.

i still like it though for some reason. :/

@Darkion the whole premise is stupid, even if they made this whole shit up, they can't produce the crucial evidence that he can use magic. so what's the point exactly?
"you killed someone with a gun you don't possess while you were drunk! prove me wrong!" not the best example, cause a gun is an object that exist and therefore can be messed with, but you should know what i'm trying to tell you.

the burden of prove is NOT on him, is what i'm trying to say here. otherwise you could be accused of any crime without being able to do anything about it.
that's why this should wrap up quickly, otherwise this is devolving into a dumbster fire really fast.

they might as well throw in some BS, cause we don't know how the magic system in this manga works.
so, i'm expecting some serious deus ex machina nonsense.
but i'm getting ahead of myself, let's just see how this plays out.

@AnonDePlume oh wow, okay. that would explain this nonsense if that was true.
