Manslaughter charge

I have had a hint from Ancestry that one of my ancestors William Hastings born 15 February 1818 in Wytham, Berkshire (UK) stood trial accused of manslaughter on 23 February 1839, he was acquitted but any idea where I could more details about how the trial came to be and the supposed crime please.
