was in self defense. The Prosecution will base its case in chief on the idea that 1) there was no self defense, therefore 2) Z killing him was done without legal justification. The burden is then on them to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt. They will try and establish as many facts through evidence presented and testimony as possible which indicate the depraved mind standard required for a verdict of Murder 2.
