Name: Drayden v. White
Court: US Court of Appeals
District 9 Cir
Opinion Date: 11/14/2000
Subsequent History: None
Summary

Sufficient evidence supported petitioner’s conviction for first-degree murder where the manner of killing strongly suggested premeditation and deliberation. Petitioner strangled the victim when the victim was unconscious, but alive. Although the evidence did not compel a finding of premeditation and deliberation, there was insufficient evidence to sustain the findings.
