Bentley v. State of Delaware, 387, 2006
Defendant's convictions for first degree murder and weapons-related offenses are reversed and remanded for a new trial where the trial court's limitation of defendant's cross examination of a witness pursuant to her assertion of her Fifth Amendment privilege, without striking either part or all of her testimony from the record, created at least a substantial danger of prejudice to his right to a fair trial.
