Syllabus

The question of excluding a witness pending the testimony of other witnesses in a trial for murder is within the discretion of the trial court, but if a witness disobeys the order of withdrawal, he is not thereby disqualified, but may be proceeded against for contempt, and his testimony is open to comment to the jury by reason of his conduct.

A general exception to a charge which does not direct the attention of the court to the particular portions of it to which objection is made raises no question for review.

The denial of a motion for a new trial cannot be assigned for error.
