Stewart v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner and a codefendant were found guilty of murder in the first degree committed in the perpetration of an attempted robbery. Both individuals were sentenced to life in prison. Now before the Supreme Court was Petitioner’s pro se petition to reinvest jurisdiction in the trial court to consider a petition for writ of error coram nobis in the case, alleging, inter alia, that the State withheld evidence from the defense at trial in violation of Brady v. Maryland. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding (1) there was no Brady violation because Petitioner did not show that there was any evidence withheld from the defense; and (2) Petitioner’s remaining allegations were not within the scope of a coram-nobis proceeding.
