Brown v. State (1986)

In Brown v. State, 704 S.W.2d 506, 507-08 (Tex. App.--Dallas 1986, pet. ref'd). Brown, who was over a foot taller and approximately ninety to one hundred pounds heavier than the victim, admitted "to striking the deceased several times, knocking her to the floor, and then dragging her into the closet." Id. at 507. The Dallas Court held that, considering the extent of the victim's injuries and the "relative size and strength of the parties," a rational jury could have found intent beyond a reasonable doubt. Id. at 507-08.
