William Linscott (defendant) was convicted for the murder of Norman Grenier, a drug dealer. Linscott and his friend, Joel Fuller, planned to rob Grenier. Their plan involved breaking a window of Grenier’s home and showing Grenier their gun, so as to discourage any resistance from him. At Grenier’s home, Linscott broke the window as planned. But instead of showing Grenier the gun, Fuller immediately fired the gun through the broken window and hit Grenier in the chest, killing him. Fuller proceeded to take $1,300 from Grenier’s pocket and left. At trial, Linscott testified that he did not intend for Grenier to die as a result of the robbery. The trial court found Linscott guilty of robbery. The court also found Linscott guilty of murder as an accomplice because Grenier’s death was a natural and probable consequence of the robbery. Linscott appealed.
