**Boscarelli tilts his head curiously, pauses a moment before turning his chair towards the jury and addressing them.**

This concludes the arguments in the matter of State v. Karpenter. At this time, you'll be convening to review the facts and witnesses presented in this case. You're free to reference the transcript at any point in your deliberation; however, outside knowledge or information struck from the record will not be considered during the course of your deliberation.

You are to consider the evidence presented in determining whether or not reasonable doubt exists in the defendant's guilt in this matter. As part of that consideration, you will decide if the defendant's alleged actions rise to either the charge of Manslaughter or Murder in the Second Degree. You may choose to find the defendant guilty of either charge for each count, or acquit him.

Murder in the Second Degree requires that the defendant willfully with malice aforethought, but without premeditation and planning, took a life. Voluntary Manslaughter acknowledges that the defendant is guilty of taking a life, but in the heat of the moment with no prior intent to kill or under circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to become emotionally or mentally disturbed.

Any questions or requests for clarification will be directed to the bailiff.

** Rises out of his seat as the elected foreman, he locates the judge with his gaze as he says **
* Foreman:*
Yes, your honor. On the count of second-degree murder, we find the defendant not guilty. On the count of voluntary manslaughter, we find the defendant not guilty.

** Sits back down afterwards, glaring at Kris.**
