Where a defendant in an assault case argued that the state’s voir dire question of whether the use of a racial epithet justified a shooting was improper, the question was relevant because it could reveal biases, and the judgment is affirmed because the defendant also did not show instructional error or prejudice from the state’s fleeting reference to sentencing classifications.
Judgment is affirmed.
