Alaska Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions
AK A.C.P.J.I. 11.81.350(e)(1)-(2) Justification-Deadly Force in Defense of Property (Vehicle)
A defendant [in a vehicle, or forcibly removed from a vehicle, may use deadly force upon another when and to the extent the defendant reasonably believes it is necessary to terminate what the defendant believes to be a carjacking of that vehicle at or about the time the vehicle is carjacked] [outside of a vehicle may use deadly force upon another when and to the extent the defendant believes it is necessary to terminate what the person believes to be the theft of that vehicle when another person, other than the perceived offender, is inside of the vehicle; this paragraph does not apply to a person outside of a vehicle who is involved in a dispute with a person inside of the vehicle who is a household member of the defendant.] The defendant’s belief must be reasonable under the circumstances.
Unless the state has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant did not act in self-defense, you shall find the defendant not guilty.
