Gateway murder trial

Jury instructions

leave a comment »

The state and defense are going over the jury instructions page by page.

cooper is charged with burglary, felony murder and premeditated murder, aggravated by the use of a firearm

Lesser includes are second degree murder and manslaughter, which means the jury won’t have to come back with first degree murder or nothing. They can come back with second degree murder or manslaughter.

Count one is the murder of Steven Andrews, count 2 is murder of Michelle.

They’re removing proof of posession of a firearm from the instructions.
