Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
I. Whether the district court improperly denied the application for Post-Conviction Relief, as a matter of law, to set aside the jury verdict and order a new trial because the alleged victim in this case did not die and therefore subsection (b) of N.D.C.C.12.1-16-01. cannot be presented to the jury for consideration of guilt in the context of attempted murder. II. Whether "Murder" under N.D.C.C.  12.1-16-01(b) is a strict liability offense requiring all elements to be present in order to convict.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Did the district court commit error when it denied Mr. Dominguez's application for Post-Conviction Relief because, as a matter of law, a defendant cannot be convicted of attempted murder pursuant to N.D.C.C.  12.1-16-01(1)(b) if the victim of the offense did not die?
