In a criminal trial, a judge or jury needs to reason with the available evidence to find out what happened before they can reach a verdict. In Vlek et al. (2014) a method was developed to assist reasoning with legal evidence. This method uses Bayesian networks and scenarios, where the Bayesian network is used for a probabilistic approach and the scenarios are used for a narrative approach. In this project we have tested the method from Vlek et al. (2014) on a case study of the Wamel murder. The evaluation of the method is based on several criteria that address common difficulties in legal reasoning. As a result we found that there are several benefits of the method, although there is still room for improvement.
