AN ACT TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND PROVIDE FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOMICIDE IN THE STATUTORY SCHEME FOR FIRST AND SECOND DEGREE HOMICIDE.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition:
Modifies presumption in new GS 14-17(a1) that the murder is "willful, deliberate, and premeditated" to be a rebuttable presumption if the defendant has committed certain prior offenses against the same victim as listed in subdivisions (1)-(6) of that subsection.
Modifies the list of prior offenses in subdivisions (1)-(6) of subsection (a1) by changing the citation of GS 50A-4 to GS 50B-4.1, changing the citation of GS 14-196 to GS 14-196.3, deleting from the list "any crime in which assault is an element" and "any felony listed in GS 15A-830," and adding domestic criminal trespass as defined in GS 14-134.3.
