Several may be appealed of another's death just as one may be.
 Several persons may be appealed by several of different deeds and different wounds,  in which case the success of one appellee, appealed of one wound, against one of the  appellors will not discharge another, appealed of another wound, against another  appellor,1 nor are those appealed of different wounds convicted if one of them is  vanquished, but each will defend2 his own3 cause. Several may also be appealed  as accessories, as will be explained below.4 The words of the appeal are these:
The words of the appeal for the death of a brother or another. The appeal against an accessory.
 A. appeals D.5 for that, when he and C., his brother, were in the peace of God and  of the king etc. (as above)6 the said D.5 came with B., the aforesaid appellee, and  with others (to be named), and wickedly and feloniously etc. (as above)6 dealt the  same C. a mortal wound in such a part [of his body] with a certain two-edged axe,  of which, had he not died of the first wound he would have died. And that he did  this wickedly and feloniously he offers etc. (as above).6 [Or] A. appeals such a one  that when he and C. his brother were in such a place etc. (as above) the same man  came with the aforesaid B., appealed as principal, and with others (to be named),  and held the said C. his brother while B. slew him (or assisted7 him or gave him aid or  advice in some way, by order or instructions) whereby the said C. was the more  surely slain. And that he did8 this wickedly and feloniously he offers etc. The  reason he says wickedly is because those wickedly slain or killed are very often  held in restraint9 by their friends out of good will and not malice.10 Thus it is prudent  and just to make careful inquiry as to intention and purpose. 11If all are present,  both accessories and principals, let proceedings be taken against them all in order,  provided that accessories do not answer before the principal is convicted.12 If all  are absent, both principals and accessories, let proceedings then be taken against  them in order, as above more fully [in the portion] on summoning accused defendants  and fugitives.13 If some are present and some absent, let proceedings then be  taken against them in order, provided that the principal is convicted first.14 The  same may be said of several appellees appealed of different wounds as was said of  the aforesaid.15
