Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia;† and Solicitor Cecil Kelley Jackson, of Sumter; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Tyrone Cameron was indicted for assault and battery with intent to kill and criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature (CDV HAN).† Following a jury trial he was convicted of† CDV HAN and sentenced to eight years in prison.† Cameron argues the trial court erred in declining to give the jury an instruction on self-defense.
