A research reference for North Carolina judges and lawyers who handle capital cases, this 300-page book is designed to help them understand statutes and case law affecting the trial and sentencing of defendants charged with first-degree murder when the state seeks the death penalty. Although its primary focus is the sentencing process, it also discusses selected pretrial and trial issues that commonly arise in first-degree capital murder trials.

The third edition updates and builds on previous editions and includes:

  • Summaries of appellate cases rendered through the end of 2012
  • Relevant statutory law that has also been updated
  • More analysis and discussion than previous versions
  • New chapter on the Racial Justice Act
  • Index of cases cited and a subject index
