Criminal Practice – Murder – Evidence – Expert Testimony – Bullets – Forensic Toolmark ID – Defendant’s Finances (access required)

State v. Britt N.C. courts have allowed expert testimony on firearm toolmark identification for decades; furthermore, defendant did not introduce any new or compelling evidence to challenge the reliability of the methodology. We uphold the trial court’s ruling that toolmark identification is sufficiently reliable. We find no error in defendant’s conviction of first-degree murder.
