State of Tennessee v. Kimberly Mangrum

Date / Time: 
October 3, 2012 - 1:00pm

Lower Court Summary:

Defendant, Kimberly Mangrum, was indicted by the Dickson County Grand Jury for
especially aggravated burglary, especially aggravated kidnapping, first degree premeditated
murder, felony murder, and four counts of criminal conspiracy, related to the commission of
each of those offenses. Following a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of aggravated
burglary, especially aggravated kidnapping, attempted first degree premeditated murder, and
felony murder. Her conviction for attempted first degree premeditated murder was merged
into her felony murder conviction, and she was sentenced to life imprisonment for her first
degree felony murder conviction, twenty-five years for especially aggravated kidnapping, and
six years for aggravated burglary, with the sentences to be served concurrently. In this direct
appeal, Defendant challenges the sufficiency of the convicting evidence and asserts that the
trial court erred by not dismissing the indictment following what, Defendant contends, was
the State’s misuse of the grand jury proceedings. After a thorough review of the record, we
affirm the judgments of the trial court.
