Bienemy v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Appellant was convicted of capital murder, as an accomplice. In 2008, Appellant filed a pro se petition for postconviction relief under Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1. On the same day, Appellant filed a petition for scientific testing under Act 1780. The trial court denied relief. In 2016, Appellant filed a second petition seeking scientific testing under Act 1780. The trial court denied the petition. Appellant appealed and filed a motion seeking an extension of time to file his brief. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal, which rendered moot the motion, holding that the trial court did not clearly err in finding that the proposed testing did not meet the requirements of the statute.
