The Higher Judicial Council defended Friday an investigative judge's recent decision to declare innocent a man accused of beating his wife to death, saying there was no evidence to back such allegations.The council said three autopsy reports, including one by a committee of doctors from the Order of Physicians in Beirut, did not find any medical evidence indicating that the cause of death was a blow to the head as alleged by Yaacoub's relatives.The judicial council backed this up Friday by saying in that reports by two forensic doctors who examined Yaacoub's body following her death showed she died due to an aneurysm.In its statement, the council said a medical committee comprised of several doctors from the Order of Physicians was tasked after the woman's family repeatedly doubted the results of the second report.
