The first thing which comes to mind is a case which illustrates a parent causing considerable bodily harm or death of a person who harmed their child. I think that, as a parent, I would do whatever it would take to protect my children. Therefore, a defendant would benefit greatly appealing to my role as a parent if on trial for battery, manslaughter, or murder. The problem solving aspect would come in by me taking into consideration the reason why the attack took place and, in the interest of the defendant, I would suggest their need and interest to protect their child. The conclusion would be that I would, most likely, consider them not guilty of the crimes based upon extreme emotional distress.
