1475 1 EXAM NO. I. (60 minutes) Consider the following facts: On June 14, 1991, Diadra Nelson had an altercation with her boyfriend, Joe Bob Shelby. It is undisputed that the subject matter of the fight was crack cocaine, although who was using the drug was in conflict. Nelson, who denied ever using drugs, claimed that the argument arose over her demand that Shelby keep his supply of cocaine out of her apartment. However, another witness stated that she and Nelson had been smoking crack cocaine all that day, and that the fight developed when Shelby came over to Nelson's house and became irate over their using the drug without him. Nelson's father was present (he owned the home) and tried to end the argument, but at some point Nelson retrieved a pistol from a bedroom and shot Shelby in the mouth. Shelby never regained consciousness and died, still comatose, after catching pneumonia in the hospital 13 months later.
