Kenyon v. State

In Kenyon v. State, 2004 WY 100, 96 P. 3d 1016, 1025 (Wyo. 2004), expert testimony concerning battered woman's syndrome was presented to explain the victim's irrational behavior in answer to the defendant's specific defenses that the victim's behavior proved he had not battered or kidnapped her. The Court said: "An explanation of the victim's conduct is admissible, and to the extent that it describes characteristics of those in the relationship, those references are an integral part of admissible framework evidence and not character evidence." Kenyon, 2004 WY 100, P23, 96 P. 3d at 1025.
