A state Superior Court panel this week ruled that a jury should have been allowed to hear that the victim, Gregory Schumacher, 46, had a criminal record that included a conviction for a violent knife attack. Robert Irgang, 33, told police that Schumacher had made advances toward him on April 26, 1997. Irgang said that he had been asleep when Schumacher awakened him by touching his leg, and an altercation ensued. An autopsy showed that Schumacher died after being struck 20 times with a skillet. Irgang was convicted of third-degree murder, and Judge Raymond A. Novak sentenced him to 15 to 40 years in prison. Irgang had argued at trial that the attack was in self-defense, and produced evidence that Schumacher had been involved in a bar fight about five years before and had brandished a knife. The three-judge Superior Court panel ruled that the trial court had been bound to give the jury an instruction that it consider whether Schumacher might have been the aggressor.
