Topic: If macbeth was still alive show a newspaper article showing the trial that would take place concerning his conviction of murder

From the evidence revealed in the autopsy of Duncan, and the statement given to police by witnesses, it was discovered that he was stabbed a total of seven times in the chest area causing death to the victim.
