State v. Wilberto Rodriguez

6-9-07 (A-25/26-07)

Based on the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice, a person who kills in the honest and reasonable belief that the protection of
his own life requires the use of deadly force does not kill recklessly. The State’s failure to prove beyond a reasonable
doubt that defendant did not act in self-defense in repelling his attacker entitles defendant to an exoneration of criminal
liability on the murder, aggravated manslaughter, and manslaughter charges.
