Terrell v. State

In Terrell v. State, 92 Wis. 2d 470, 473-74, 285 N.W.2d 601 (1979), Terrell shot a man several times at close range after the man took offense at his comments and knocked him down. The court reasoned that evidence that the victim had been shot in widely separate parts of his body and that some shots had not hit him at all could reasonably demonstrate to a jury that the defendant had not aimed at the victim with the specific intent to kill. See 92 Wis. 2d at 474-75.
