Criminal Practice – Murder – Indictment Amendment – Date – Alibi Defense — Evidence – Witness Statements (access required)

State v. Avent Although defendant was relying on an alibi defense, the amendment of the murder date in the indictment did not prejudice him. He was still able to present an alibi for the corrected date of the murder; moreover, witness statements and the autopsy gave the correct date, so defendant was not surprised by the amendment of the indictment.
