v.
Lee Samuel Christensen

Defendant appealed from the judgment and sentence entered on his conviction of second-degree murder. Defendant contended the district court erred in overruling his motion for new trial based on jury misconduct and jury bias, and prosecutorial misconduct. The court of appeals reversed on the basis of juror misconduct and remanded for a new trial. The State seeks further review.
