On August 3, 1988, Officer Lewis was dispatched to an apartment in response to a report of a domestic dispute between defendant and his wife, Lisa. On his arrival, Lewis was met by Lisa. Also present were the minor daughter of Lisa and defendant. In the apartment, defendant and Lisa shared methamphetamine. About 20 minutes later, Lewis, accompanied by a second police officer, met defendant in the parking lot of the apartment. Lewis asked defendant about the needle marks on his body. Defendant initially responded, “Yeah, I got a few tracks,” and then said that the marks were injuries from his workplace. Lisa yelled: “You liar, you got them from shooting up in the bedroom with all your stupid friends.” Defendant “hung his head and shook his head back and forth.” Defendant objected to the trial court’s admission of the testimony about Lisa Carlson’s accusation and the defendant’s reaction to it.
