Burgie v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of capital murder and aggravated robbery. Appellant was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. The Supreme Court affirmed. Appellant later filed a pro se application for writ of certiorari arguing, inter alia, that his sentence was illegal because he was found guilty of capital murder with aggravated robbery as the underlying felony, and aggravated robbery did not specifically appear as a lesser-included offense to capital murder in the capital-murder statute at the time he committed the offenses. The trial court denied Appellant’s petition. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that Appellant failed to show that he was entitled to relief for the writ of certiorari to issue.
