Watson v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
In 2010, appellant Roosevelt Watson went to his uncle's house to watch a basketball game on television. The evening ended with one of the uncle's friends, Quinton Brown, dead by a single gunshot wound to the chest. Appellant would ultimately be convicted of malice murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Appellant argued on appeal only that the trial court committed plain error in failing to give the jury an instruction on mutual combat. Finding no error, the Supreme Court affirmed.
