California Court of Appeal

P. v. Williams, 081267

Reversing and remanding for a new trial a case in which a man stabbed and killed his wife because the prosecution introduced and heavily relied upon a 23 year old conviction of a shooting with intent to kill conviction in order to establish premeditation, a case that had scant relevance to the stabbing and whose relevance was outweighed by the unfair prejudice it introduced.
