People v. DeHoyos, S034800

Defendant's conviction for first degree murder and related charges, and capital sentence are affirmed, where: 1) the trial court did not err in denying defendant's motion for mistrial brought under Wheeler/Batson; 2) any error in admitting the expert's testimony on whether defendant knew the difference between right and wrong over defendant's relevancy objection was harmless; 3) the trial court did not abuse its discretion in allowing a defense expert to be questioned regarding her handling of interview tapes in a prior case; and 4) defendant's remaining arguments fail.
