Mr. Nock was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of the first-degree murder of Larry Ellison who died of strangulation in 2009. Mr. Nock argues that his trial was unfair because the state did not show the entire videotaped recording of his police statement to the jury and because the state informed the jury of his prior felonies. The state argues that Mr. Nock had the opportunity to present the video during his portion of the trial and that the jury was properly informed of his prior felonies. The Fourth District Court of Appeal upheld Mr. Nock’s conviction and certified conflict with the Second District Court of Appeal.
