Woman Killed At J'ouvert Festival After Telling Man To Stop Grinding On Her

Either A Blessing Or A Lesson.
Oh Happy Day! They made up for the acquittal of manslaughter by giving dude the maximum for Negligent Homicide 17 1/3 years.

It's hard to watch but I am glad that the victims mother didn't talk about forgiveness. She asked the judge to give her childs murderer the maximum amount of time possible. Ask and Ye Shall Receive. :pray:

I could buy that he didn't intend to kill her if she had just been a bystander and the gun went off. It's hard to believe that he accidentally shot the victim directly in the face after being told to stop grinding on her. That's an awful big coincidence.
One could certainly prove intent in his actions. Duration for premeditation is not fixed, it has to be analyzed on a case by case basis.

Dude went to a parade with a loaded gun.
Grinds on a woman, she tells him gtfoh
Dude pulls out gun
Points it in said woman’s face
Pulls the trigger

Premeditation can be quick. You also have to look at the temperament of the person, the circumstances of the incident, environment etc.

Eta: intoxication is typically not a defense.
