Chambers v. State of Delaware, 282, 2006

A conviction and sentence for murder and related offenses is affirmed over claims that: 1) the superior court abused its discretion in denying a defense request for a mistrial after the trial judge allowed an investigating officer to speak with a witness for the state during a recess, and before the witness had concluded his direct testimony; and 2) the superior court committed legal error when it refused to give a jury instruction concerning the testimony of accomplices or participants.
