Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • An error is harmless if a reviewing court can conclude, without usurping the jury’s fact finding function, that, had the error not occurred, the verdict would have been the same. Thus, where the reviewing court is able to determine that the trial court’s error in failing to instruct the jury could not have affected the verdict, that error is harmless. Such a determination can be made where it is evident from the verdict that the jury would have necessarily rejected the lesser included offense on which it was not instructed.
  • Homicide committed pursuant to a preconceived plan is not voluntary manslaughter. Premeditation and reasonable provocation cannot coexist.
