Update on Felony Murder Case

This refers back to one of the items in the “Odds and Ends” post this week…

Kyle Carriker found not guilty of felony murder

WICHITA, Kan. — Jurors have reached a not guilty verdict in the murder trial of a man accused in a deadly drug deal.

Kyler Carriker was one of five men charged in the 2013 death of Ronald Betts. Specifically, Carriker was charged under the state’s felony murder rule. […]

Carriker left the courtroom and hugged his mother, former Kansas gubernatorial and Wichita mayoral candidate Jennifer Winn. She and other protesters said from the beginning, marijuana offenses should not be grouped in the same category as inherently violent felonies.

Good that the jury saw through this farce, even if the District Attorney still defends the prosecution.

    DA Inner thought: So, even when I’m wrong, I won’t admit it to myself.

    Hmm, textbook denial anyone?

    Wow, that sounds like jury nullification, doesn’t it?
