Kitchens v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Following a jury trial, Shawn Kitchens was found guilty of felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and participation in criminal street gang activity. On appeal, Kitchens argued, among other things, that the evidence was insufficient to support the verdict and that the trial court erred by improperly charging the jury on motive. Kitchens further claims that trial counsel rendered ineffective assistance. Finding no reversible error, the Supreme Court affirmed.
