Authoring Judge: Judge Robert W. Wedemeyer
Trial Court Judge: Joseph H. Walker, III
A Tipton County jury convicted the Petitioner of first degree murder, felony murder, aggravated robbery, and especially aggravated kidnapping. The trial court merged the two murder convictions and imposed a single life sentence with the possibility of parole. On direct appeal, this Court affirmed the conviction, and the Tennessee Supreme Court denied the Defendant's application for permission to appeal. The Petitioner then sought post-conviction relief in the trial court, alleging that he was denied effective assistance of counsel. Following a hearing, the post-conviction court dismissed the petition. The Petitioner filed a motion to reconsider, which the trial court denied, and the Petitioner appealed. Finding no error, we affirm the trial court's dismissal of the petition.
