The opinion of the court was delivered


Clayton Anderson was indicted and tried with five co-defendants in the Essex County Court for first degree murder. Anderson was found guilty without a recommendation of life imprisonment and was sentenced to death. Upon appeal to this Court the judgment of conviction was reversed and the cause remanded for a new trial. See State v. Blanchard, 44 N.J. 195, 207 A.2d 681 (1965). Anderson was thereafter tried by himself on said murder indictment and convicted of murder in the second degree and sentenced to from 21 to 25 years in the State Prison. From this judgment of conviction he now appeals.
