Bradshaw v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Christopher Bradshaw and Michael Boykin were jointly indicted for malice murder and other crimes in connection with the shooting deaths of Devonta Stembridge and Dion Brice. The trial court severed codefendants' trials, and appellant was tried first, with Boykin testifying against him. Appellant was convicted on all counts of the indictment, except the count for tampering with evidence, on which the trial court directed a verdict. Appellant argued on appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions and that the trial court erred by admitting evidence of a prior murder committed by appellant. Finding no reversible error, the Supreme Court affirmed.
