McNeely v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Nebula McNeely was convicted of two counts of felony murder and other offenses related to shoplifting and the deaths of two individuals
arising from an automobile collision. The collision occurred when appellant and her accomplice were fleeing and attempting to elude a police officer after they had been confronted for shoplifting. After review, the Supreme Court affirmed in part with respect to the convictions, but vacated in part, with respect to the separate sentence imposed for the conviction for felony fleeing and eluding, because the Court found that for purposes of sentencing, that conviction merged as a matter of law with the convictions for felony murder.
