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 petition to correct an illegal sentence pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. 16-90-111, raising two claims of error in support of his petition. The trial court denied the petition. Appellant lodged an appeal in the Supreme Court and filed four motions related to the appeal. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal and declared the motions moot, holding that Appellant did not show that his sentence was illegal and, therefore, was not entitled to relief under section 16-90-111.
