The word accused is used to refer a group of people or a person who is on trial for a crime.
The reason that I am coming up with this word is that most of the people use the word ‘accused’, for the people who are on trial, in a wrong way. There is a guideline that you can follow if you want your writing to be error-free.
According to AP Style, you have to write ‘accused of’ instead of ‘accused with’. A person is accused of a crime, not with a crime.
Accused of = Correct
Accused with = Wrong
1. He is accused of doing something wrong that is not acceptable at any cost.
2. The police arrested him because he was accused of the murder of an innocent boy.
Furthermore, you cannot write for a person as an ‘accused slayer’. The correct phrase would be ‘accused of the slaying’.
• Accused slayer Smith Johnson. (Wrong)
• Smith Johnson, who was accused of slaying… (Correct)
