GEORGIA CRIMINAL JURY INSTRUCTIONS (G.C.J.I.)
GA 01.34.20 Prior Difficulties between Parties
Evidence of prior difficulties between the defendant and the alleged victim has been admitted for the sole purpose of illustrating, if it does so illustrate, the state of feeling between the defendant and the alleged victim and the bent of mind and course of conduct on the part of the defendant.
Whether this evidence illustrates such matters is a matter solely for you, the jury, to determine, but you are not to consider such evidence for any other purpose.
