Howard v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted second-degree murder. Appellant received a combined term of thirty-eight years’ imprisonment for these convictions. Appellant appealed, arguing that the circuit court erred by failing to grant his motions for directed verdict because the evidence did not demonstrate that he was the perpetrator of the offenses and that the State’s theories of the murders were not supported by the evidence. The Supreme Court affirmed Appellant’s convictions and sentences, holding that the jury’s verdicts were supported by substantial evidence.
