Criminal Practice – Jury Instruction – Diminished Capacity – Insufficient Evidence (access required)

State v. McDowell Even though defendant’s experts testified about his mental conditions, they never testified that these conditions left him unable to premeditate, deliberate or form the specific intent to kill; therefore, defendant was not entitled to a jury instruction on diminished capacity. We find no error in defendant’s conviction of first-degree murder.
