Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In Krantz v. Lindamood, the Sixth Circuit rejected defendant's argument that his conviction was not supported by sufficient evidence because the state did not prove that he had the intent to kill any specific person.
As stated in the decision: "The evidence produced at trial revealed that Krantz, after threatening to get a gun and return to kill either Williams, Speakman, or everyone, went to his house, retrieved his shotgun, and upon returning to the tavern, fired the shotgun into the tavern."
Thus, the court held in affirming the denial of defendant's request for habeas relief, that the state needed to prove only that defendant intentionally attempted to kill someone, and not necessarily anyone specifically.
