This CLE will highlight the meaning and functions of narratives and constructing narratives in murder cases. Specifically, it will address finding murder narratives in the jury instructions, defenses, and autopsy reports that will support a lesser verdict. It will also spell out the risks from narratives that open the door to Rule 404(b) evidence. There will also be a ballistics primer, a focus on recurring and novel evidence issues, and an ethics discussion on the defendant's right to tell his story.
