Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Tony L. Bennett

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA EASTERN DISTRICT


November 22, 2011

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, ` PETITIONER
v.
TONY L. BENNETT, RESPONDENT

Petition for Allowance of Appeal from the Order of the Superior Court

Per curiam.

ORDER

AND NOW, this 22nd day of November 2011, the Petition for Allowance of Appeal is GRANTED. The issues, as stated by petitioner, are:

(1) Does the Superior Court's published decision overturning [respondent's] first-degree murder conviction on the basis of a supposedly defective accomplice liability instruction overlook and contradict this Court's precedent?

(2) In the alternative, did the Superior Court contravene this Court's precedent by failing to modify the judgment to the lesser-included offense of second-degree murder, which was unaffected by the supposedly erroneous jury instruction?
