    A prospective juror in a Dallas District Court was surprised
    by the definition of voluntary manslaughter given the panel:

    "An intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is
    under the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from
    an adequate cause, such as when a spouse's mate is found in a
    'compromising position.'"

    "See, I have a problem with that passion business," responded
    the jury candidate. "During my first marriage, I came in and
    found my husband in bed with my neighbor. All I did was
    divorce him. I had no idea that I could have shot him."

    She wasn't selected for the jury.
