Williams v. State (Per Curiam)Annotate this Case
Petitioner was found guilty of murder in the first degree and abuse of a corpse. Petitioner was sentenced as a habitual offender to an aggregate sentence of life imprisonment. The Supreme Court affirmed. Now before the 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. In his petition, Petitioner asserted, inter alia, that the State suppressed exculpatory evidence in violation of Brady v. Maryland. The Supreme Court denied the petition, holding (1) Petitioner failed to establish a Brady violation; and (2) the remainder of Petitioner’s claims were not cognizable in coram nobis proceedings.
