QUOTE
The Indiana Supreme Court has reinstated the involuntary manslaughter conviction of John Larkin in the death of his wife Stacy in 2012.

Larkin's case has been through the appeals process multiple times since his wife was shot to death in December 2012.

In September 2019, Larkin was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. In November 2020, the Indiana Court of Appeals overturned that conviction arguing the jury should not have been instructed on involuntary manslaughter because it was not a lesser or included offense of voluntary manslaughter.

The appeals court overturned his conviction and ordered a finding of acquittal.

Tuesday the Indiana Supreme Court overturned the appeals court's decision and reinstated Larkin's involuntary manslaughter conviction.

The supreme court found involuntary manslaughter was a factually included lesser offense because the state alleged all of the elements of involuntary manslaughter in the charging documents. Involuntary manslaughter requires a battery that "incidentally" kills the victim. Larkin committed battery when he shot his wife and when he pushed his wife, according to the court decision.

Another point addressed by the court was the allegation Larkin did not receive fair notice of the involuntary manslaughter charge. The court says Larkin admitted to pushing Stacy with the gun, causing it to discharge. Larkin admitted to the battery that led to Stacy's death - and the state used his admission against him, the supreme court said.

You know what amazes me, is that thank god the Supreme Court Overruled and is making him go to jail. But I wish it was instant, he's had 8 1/2 years to be a free person. Time to pay your time !!!!! Enough is enough. But I know it's the legal system.

Ok now this POS wants to petition for a rehearing and oral argument. Attached is the petition, He has had 8 1/2 years of freedom , appealed multiple times . The Supreme Court ruled and reinstated his conviction. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. He is considered a CONVICTED FELON, and he's STILL FREE ROAMING THE STREETS. IT MEANS HE KILLED STACEY plain and simple. TIME FOR HIM TO SERVE HIS SENTENCE !!!!!

is John in jail? on what grounds is he free?

This is super thin - not sure it should be pursued. what if the appeals court says he needs to be retried? Could result in a longer sentence.

No he is not in jail, good question why is he free ?The Supreme Court reinstated his conviction he should have been taken into custody that day. Means a convicted FELON and KILLER is still on the streets.
