F 18.34 n1 ADW By Life Prisoner: PC 188 — Malice Required (PC 4500).
In a PC 4500 prosecution, it is error to define malice in terms of the intended assault. Rather, malice must be defined in terms of murder malice per PC 188. (People v. Chacon (68) 69 C2d 765, 780-81 [73 CR 10].) [An unpublished opinion on this issue is available to FORECITE subscribers. Ask for Opinion Bank # O-170.]
