People v. Ellis

In People v. Ellis (1978) 41 Colo.Ct.App. 271 589 P.2d 494, a murder case involving a child victim, the trial court abused its discretion in admitting four autopsy photographs that showed "views of the child's brain still attached to the body, with the top of the head removed and the face obscured by blood and tissue," "the interior of the skull with the brain absent," and "a full length view of the victim's body split open from the neck to the crotch, exposing various internal organs." (People v. Ellis, supra, 41 Colo.Ct.App. at pp. 272-273.)
