Criminal Practice – Felony Murder – Girlfriend’s Fear – Lesser Included Offense — Allen Charge – Pattern Jury Instruction (access required)

State v. Gettys Defendant claims it was error for the trial court to allow defendant’s girlfriend to testify that she didn’t press him for details on the night he killed the victim “because I didn’t want him to get pissed off and beat my ass ....” However, defendant does not challenge substantially similar testimony from a detective who interviewed the girlfriend and relayed her statement to the jury.
