People v. Aveni, 19

The Appellate Division's finding that defendant's statement was not voluntary where interrogators misrepresented to him that his girlfriend was still alive and they needed to know if she used drugs so that doctors did not give her the wrong medication, is affirmed, where: 1) the Appellate Division used the correct legal standard in its reversal of the lower court; and 2) its determination that the potential to overwhelm defendant's free will was realized was plainly one of fact.
