TITLE 15 CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS
Chapter 200 Crimes Against the Person
NRS 200.130 Bare fear insufficient to justify killing; reasonable fear required.
NRS 200.130 Bare fear insufficient to justify killing; reasonable fear required. A bare fear of any of the offenses mentioned in NRS 200.120, to prevent which the homicide is alleged to have been committed, shall not be sufficient to justify the killing. It must appear that the circumstances were sufficient to excite the fears of a reasonable person, and that the party killing really acted under the influence of those fears and not in a spirit of revenge.
