Geiger v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Following a jury trial, Tomorris Geiger was found guilty of murder, felony murder, armed robbery, kidnapping, and various other offenses in connection with the shooting deaths of cousins Dewayne and John Bacon. On appeal, Geiger challenged the sufficiency of the evidence that supported the verdict. Further, he argued the trial court erred by admitting similar transactions and improper character evidence, that the trial court erred by denying Geiger’s second request for a continuance; and that his trial counsel was ineffective. Finding no reversible error, the Supreme Court affirmed.
