No. 2 CA-CR 2315.

130 Ariz. 461 (1981)

636 P.2d 1243

The STATE of Arizona, Appellee, v. Mane SOURIVATHONG, Appellant.

Court of Appeals of Arizona, Division 2.

Rehearing Denied November 5, 1981.

Review Denied December 1, 1981.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Robert K. Corbin, Atty. Gen. by William J. Schafer, III, Gerald R. Grant, Asst. Attys. Gen., Phoenix, for appellee.

Frederic J. Dardis, Pima County Public Defender by Barry J. Baker Sipe, Asst. Public Defender, Tucson, for appellant.



Appellant has been convicted of aggravated assault. In this appeal he contends that the trial court erred in rejecting his proposed jury instructions on self-defense and in allowing certain testimony which is claimed to be inadmissible hearsay.

To determine whether self-defense instructions were required, we look to appellant's evidence and to any other evidence in the case which might support the claim of self-defense.
