Criminal Practice – Murder-for-Hire – Evidence – Prior Shooting – Harmless Error (access required)

U.S. v. Byers Even assuming the district court erred in allowing testimony about defendant's alleged prior shooting of another man, or testimony from the later murder victim's girlfriend, the 4th Circuit says any errors were harmless and did not unfairly affect the trial of two codefendants in this murder-for-hire case involving the fatal shooting of a witness to prevent him from testifying against one of the codefendants in a state murder trial.
