The Georgia Supreme Court has upheld the conviction against Anthony Jabbar Shaw of the 2009 murder of Baron Harbin of Smyrna.
The court rejected Shaw’s argument that he should be granted a new trial because a Cobb County judge failed to instruct the jury that one acting in self defense has no duty to retreat. According to the court’s opinion, Harbin confronted Shaw at his apartment and left, but Shaw got a kitchen knife and followed Harbin outside and fatally stabbed him in a scuffle.
