3 Elements of Evident Premeditation

The requisites of evident premeditation are: (1) the time when the offender determined to commit the crime must be adequately shown; (2) an act to show that the offender clung to his determination and (3) a sufficient lapse of time between the determination and the execution to allow the offender to reflect upon the consequences of his act. [G.R. No. 118079. December 24, 1996]
