US v. Headman, No. 09-1033

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on February 05, 2010 2:14 PM

Defendant's murder conviction is affirmed in part where: 1) defendant's Brady claim failed because he did not show that the allegedly undisclosed information was material; and 2) the trial court's instructions did not misinform the jury about the application of the intoxication defense to aiding and abetting first-degree premeditated murder.  However, the conviction is reversed in part where, for double jeopardy reasons, the government conceded that either the felony-murder or kidnapping conviction should be vacated on remand.
