State v. XiongAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of first-degree premeditated murder, second-degree intentional murder, and second-degree unintentional murder while committing a felony. Defendant appealed, seeking a new trial based on the district court's allegedly erroneous admission of expert testimony offered by a medical examiner and a firearms examiner. Defendant argued that the testimony was improperly admitted because it intruded on the fact-finding role of the jury. Defendant did not object to the testimony at trial. The Supreme Court affirmed Defendant's convictions, holding that the district court properly admitted the expert testimony of the medical examiner and the firearms examiner.
