State v. Frazier, ___ N.C. App. ___, 790 S.E.2d 312 (Jul. 5, 2016)

Where the trial court submitted an instruction on automatism as a defense to a charge of felony child abuse, it was not required to instruct the jury on lesser included child abuse offenses. Automatism is a complete defense to a criminal charge and did not render any of the elements of felonious child abuse in conflict.
