STATE v. ALLERY
101 Wn.2d 591 (1984)
The Supreme Court of Washington, En Banc.
May 17, 1984.
The trial court gave only one instruction on self-defense:
Homicide is justifiable when committed in the lawful defense of the slayer when the slayer, even though mistaken, has reasonable ground to believe that the person slain intends to inflict death or great bodily harm and there appears to the slayer to be imminent danger of such harm being accomplished.
The slayer may employ such force and means as a reasonably prudent person would use under the same or similar conditions as they appeared to the slayer at the time.
It is a complete defense to a charge of homicide that it was justifiable.
If, after considering all of the evidence in the case, you have a reasonable doubt as to whether the killing was done in self defense, you must return a verdict of not guilty.
