ID ICJI 1516 EXCUSABLE HOMICIDE DEFENSE

The defendant contends as a defense in this case that the killing of the decedent was an excusable homicide.

Homicide is excusable when [insert description of conduct and/or event, appropriately worded consistent with the applicable provisions of I.C. s 184012, based upon the facts in evidence].

The burden is on the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the homicide was not excusable.  If there is a reasonable doubt whether the homicide was excusable, you must find the defendant not guilty.
