Criminal Law: Involuntary Manslaughter-Newly Discovered Evidence-Warrantless Blood Test

Where a defendant challenged his convictions for first-degree involuntary manslaughter and second-degree assault, the trial court did not err in admitting the results of a warrantless blood test taken while the defendant was unconscious since the test was supported by probable cause, and the judgment is affirmed because the court did not err in refusing to suppress the defendant’s statements or in denying the motion for a new trial based upon newly discovered evidence.

Judgment is affirmed.
