State v. Karr, 2015 UT App 287, (Nov. 27, 2015)

In this murder case, the defendant asserted the right to use force to defend his home pursuant to Utah Code § 76-2-405. The Court of Appeals held that the statutory presumption of reasonableness of the force used is rebuttable by a showing of evidence of objective reasonableness, and that defendant’s subjective beliefs of whether his actions were reasonable do not control.
