Powell v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellants William and Sharmilla Powell were husband and wife. They appealed their convictions stemming from the 2008 death of Jesse Evans and the armed robbery of Geno Evans and Antonio Cunningham. William sold drugs and Geno Evans was believed to be a drug dealer. William and Sharmilla decided to rob Geno. When the police arrived, they found the bodies of Jesse and Scott on the porch of Geno Evans' house and found a wounded Cunningham inside the house. Police later apprehended appellants in Washington, D.C. Appellants, among other things, argued the evidence presented against them did not support their convictions and sentences. Finding no reversible error, the Supreme Court affirmed the Powells' convictions.
