Wilson v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Petitioner was convicted of capital murder based on accomplice liability and was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. The Supreme Court affirmed, concluding that sufficient evidence supported the conviction based on Petitioner’s confession that he had participating in the murder together with his mother and brother. Now before the Court was Petitioner’s pro se application to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for a writ of error coram nobis based on Petitioner’s allegation that the State committed a Brady violation. In support of the allegation, Petitioner attached an affidavit to the petition executed by Petitioner’s mother and stating that she lied about Petitioner’s participation in the murder. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding that the petition and the attached affidavit failed to establish a basis for coram-nobis relief.
