PEOPLE v. KANAWYER, C041832

Defendant's appeal of denial for failing to read requested jury instructions on the possibility of voluntary manslaughter is affirmed as the record lacks substantial evidence of sufficient provocation to arouse a homicidal rage or passion in an ordinarily reasonable person, as required to warrant an instruction on voluntary manslaughter in a heat of passion.
