OK OUJI-CR 8-2.  DEFENSE OF ANOTHER – JUSTIFIABLE USE OF DEADLY FORCE

A person is justified in using deadly force in defense of his/her husband/wife/ parent/child/master/mistress/servant if that person reasonably believed that use of deadly force was necessary to protect his/her husband/wife/parent/child/master/ mistress/servant from imminent danger of death or great bodily harm. Defense of another is a defense although the danger to the life or personal security of his/her husband/wife/parent/child/master/mistress/servant may not have been real, if a reasonable person, in the circumstances and from the viewpoint of the defendant, would reasonably have believed that his/her husband/wife/parent/child/master/ mistress/servant was in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm.
