United States v. Henthorn, No. 15-1490 (10th Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
A district court presiding over a murder trial did not abuse its discretion in admitting evidence of prior, similar incidents, including whether the defendant killed his second wife in circumstances similar to those that led to the death of his first wife. The evidence was properly admitted under Federal Rule of Evidence 404(b), was relevant, and was not substantially outweighed by unfair prejudice.
