Question 4 Tom had a heart ailment so serious that his doctors had concluded that only a heart transplant could save his life. They therefore arranged to have him flown to a nearby city to have the operation performed. Dan, Tom’s nephew, who stood to inherit from Tom, poisoned him. The poison produced a reaction, which required postponing the journey. The plane on which Tom was to have flown crashed, and all aboard were killed. By the following day, Tom’s heart was so weakened by the effects of the poison that he suffered a heart attack and died. If charged with criminal homicide, Dan should be found: Question 5 Assume that one of Ms. Roberts’s “biggest fans” drives up to the 7-Eleven just as the shooting starts.

Question 6 Romo, a locksmith, knew that his friend, Rodgers had been having marital problems. Rodgers, who was a stock clerk at the hardware store where Romo worked, had told Romo that he suspected that his wife was having an affair with their co-worker named Manning. In fact, Rodgers had even borrowed some of Romo’s tools to break into a locked chest of his wife’s to find evidence of the affair. One afternoon at the store, Rodgers, visibly upset, ran up to Romo and asked to borrow some of his tools, telling him that Manning took the afternoon off of work and was probably going to meet up with his wife. Romo gave him the tools, telling him, “Don’t do anything you’ll regret later.” Rodgers patted something under his jacket as he was leaving saying, “I think some other people are going to have the regrets.” Romo, who knew that Rodgers had been working on a display case for hunting knives that morning, began to have second thoughts about giving Rodgers the tools, but he didn’t do anything immediately because he did not want to get himself and Rodgers into trouble. Meanwhile, Rodgers went to Manning’s apartment and picked the door lock using Romo’s tools. He found his wife and Manning in bed together and stabbed Manning, seriously wounding him. A few minutes later, Romo called Manning’s apartment to try and warn Manning about Rodgers. After Rodgers was arrested, he agreed to plead guilty to aggravated battery and attempted voluntary manslaughter in exchange for testifying against Romo, who was charged as an accomplice to attempted murder. Can Romo be convicted of that charge?
