People v. Maldonado, 135

Defendant's conviction for depraved indifference murder is reduced to manslaughter in the second degree, where the evidence was legally insufficient to support defendant's conviction for depraved indifference murder because the circumstances of this high-speed vehicular police chase do not fit within the narrow category of cases wherein the facts evince a defendant's utter disregard for human life.
