Knospler v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of second-degree murder. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction, holding that the district court did not err or abuse its discretion in (1) excluding evidence relating to the victim’s criminal history; (2) excluding Appellant’s proposed expert testimony regarding the character traits of persons who view depictions of child pornography; (3) declining Appellant’s request to instruct the jury regarding self-defense in a home or habitation; (4) instructing the jury, in relation to Appellant’s claim of self-defense, that it must determine whether Appellant or the victim was the first aggressor in this case; and (5) permitting the State to introduce Wyo. R. Evid. 404(b) evidence despite the State’s late notice of its intent to use the evidence.
