From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rader v. State, 73 Tenn. 610 (1880), was a case decided by the Tennessee Supreme Court that held that to fulfill requirement of deliberation for first degree murder the purpose to kill may be formed a mere moment before the act, but deliberation does require some length of time for cool reflection free from excitement or passion.[1]
