Brown v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was found guilty of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. Defendant was sentenced to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the trial court erred when it allowed the State to play a video of an explosion of a “pipe bomb” because that video was not timely provided to defense counsel, but the error was not prejudicial; (2) the trial court abused its discretion when it allowed the State to use evidence - a bank statement - that the State did not timely provide to defense counsel, but the error was harmless; and (3) the trial court did not err in admitting character evidence under Wyo. R. Evid. 404(b) and in refusing to give a limiting instruction with regard to use of Rule 404(b) evidence.
