Criminal Practice – Second-Degree Murder – Jury Instructions – Felony Murder – Child Abuse – Sentencing – Aggravating Factor (access required)

State v. Barrow Since the state’s evidence would have permitted the jury to find that defendant did not use a deadly weapon but still killed the five-month-old victim with malice, the trial court properly instructed the jury on the offense of second-degree murder. We find no error in defendant’s conviction of second-degree murder, but we remand for re-sentencing.
