Criminal procedure — Non-expert testimony — Pistol’s capability
Following a five-day trial, a jury sitting in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City convicted appellant Donnell Walker of first-degree murder and use of a firearm in a crime of violence for the death of Victor Gwaltney, and reckless endangerment related to the shooting of Corey Staley.
Appellant presents three questions on appeal:
1) Did the lower court err in failing to allow a continuance, or issue process, to permit Mr. Walker to call one of the alleged victims – who was en route to testify – as a defense witness?
2) Did the lower court err in allowing a non-expert witness to testify as to the function and capability of a “revolver” pistol?
3) Did the lower court err in accepting inconsistent verdicts?
