Williams v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Petitioner was convicted of one count of capital-felony murder, two counts of aggravated property, and one count of misdemeanor theft of property. 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. As grounds for the writ, Petitioner asserted that he had obtained newly discovered evidence in the form of recanted testimony. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding that the petition was a claim that the evidence adduced at trial was not accurate, and claims of that sort are not within the purview of a coram nobis proceeding.
