Hey @PeterSchiff, great episode on Saturday. However, I did want to share this bit of info regarding Tennessee law, which could explain the second-degree charge:
“The key difference with second-degree murder is the mental state. A defendant does not intend after reflection to kill the victim. However, he might know that his conduct very well could have that effect. For example, a defendant might beat a person to death and should know that several blows to the head could result in death, even if this is not the intended result.”
