Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jackson County, Joel W. Barrows, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Mullins, P.J., and May and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (18 pages)

            Drew Mangler appeals following his conviction for murder in the second degree on four grounds: (1) insufficient evidence supports his conviction; (2) a jury instruction was misleading and confusing; (3) evidence was improperly excluded; and (4) a Brady violation entitles him to a new trial.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude (1) sufficient evidence supports the verdict; (2) Mangler’s appellate argument about jury instructions was not preserved and, moreover, he is not entitled to relief through the ineffective-assistance-of-counsel framework; (3) Mangler has not demonstrated the district court committed reversible error by excluding evidence; and (4) Mangler has shown no Brady violation.  So we affirm his conviction.
