  • Notes 
    • GIBSON, J. Defendant appeals his conviction of first-degree murder
      claiming that the trial court erred by refusing to instruct the jury on a
      lesser-related offense and by admitting evidence of his conduct on the day of
      the murder. He also asks us to vacate his sentence of life without parole.
      We affirm.

      At approximately 5:00 p.m. on August 13, 1992, Jeffrey Wyman was shot to
      death while he sat in his parked truck in Chester, Vermont. Witnesses who
      lived near the murder scene said they had seen a red Pontiac Fiero in the
      area at the time of the shooting. Jason Shuffleburg owned a red Pontiac
      Fiero in which he and defendant had been riding together on August 13.

      Defendant arrived at Shuffleburg's apartment about 10:00 a.m. on the day
      of the shooting. They spent the morning drinking beer both at the apartment
      and while riding in Shuffleburg's car. Sometime after noon, they left the
      apartment to purchase more beer, stopping



      first at the Springfield Shopping Plaza so defendant could borrow money from
      his wife. Upon leaving the grocery store where his wife worked, defendant
      began shouting at several teenagers who were gathered near Shuffleburg's car.
      Before a more serious altercation could ensue, Shuffleburg calmed defendant,
      and the two men got back into the car and left the Plaza.

      After leaving the Plaza, defendant and Shuffleburg returned to
      Shuffleburg's apartment where they discussed a plan to rob a poker game in
      Windsor, Vermont. They left the apartment with Shuffleburg's .32 automatic
      pistol. Fearing trouble at the poker game, Shuffleburg suggested that they
      rob a store in Chester, Vermont instead. Defendant agreed. Defendant
      entered the store armed with the pistol, but aborted the robbery because
      there were too many customers inside the store. He later reentered the store
      but abandoned the plan because there were again too many people present. He
      got back into Shuffleburg's car and the two drove away.

      The two men soon noticed Jeffrey Wyman's truck parked in a pull-off area
      on Dean Brook Road. After passing the truck, defendant told Shuffleburg to
      turn the car around. Shuffleburg testified that defendant wanted to show him
      how crazy he was. Shuffleburg turned the car around and pulled up to Wyman's
      truck. Taking the pistol, defendant approached Wyman. He asked Wyman, who
      was alone in the truck, if he had any beer or marijuana, and then shot him in
      the head. Defendant returned to the car and the two men left.

      Eventually, defendant and Shuffleburg were apprehended. Shuffleburg
      confessed to the murder but later recanted and implicated defendant as the
      triggerman. Defendant was tried by jury and convicted of first-degree
