Criminal Case Remanded for New Trial

The appeals court agreed with Hegge & Confusione in vacating the defendant’s conviction for murder and related offenses “We are satisfied that in precluding the jury from considering passion-provocation manslaughter, the court committed an error capable of producing an unjust result with respect to Whye's convictions for purposeful and knowing murder, as well as all of the remaining charges. Accordingly, a new trial is required."
