State v. Patterson

State v. Patterson

On April 16, the defendant, Allen Patterson, shot and killed his wife, Molly Patterson, in their family-owned liquor store, Al's Ales. Patterson is charged with murder in the first degree. He told the police, however, that he shot at an armed robber and instead accidentally shot and killed his wife. The crime remained unsolved for over one year until someone else was arrested on unrelated charges and implicated Patterson in the shooting. The case file addresses potential voir dire problems for the State and the defense. There are four witnesses for the plaintiff and three witnesses for the defendant.
