|ICJI 1714 UTTER DISREGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE
“Exhibited utter disregard for human life,” with regard to the murder or the circumstances surrounding its commission, refers to acts or circumstances surrounding the crime that exhibit the highest, the utmost, callous disregard for human life, i.e., the cold-blooded, pitiless slayer. “Cold-blooded” means marked by absence of warm feeling: without consideration, compunction, or clemency, matter of fact, or emotionless. “Pitiless” means devoid of or unmoved by mercy or compassion. A “cold-blooded, pitiless slayer” refers to a slayer who kills without feeling or sympathy. The utter disregard factor refers to the defendant’s lack of conscience regarding killing another human being.
This instruction should be given when the State alleges I.C. § 19-2515(9)(f).
