Walker-Madden v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Desmond Walker-Madden was tried by jury and convicted of murder and aggravated assault, both in connection with the death of Gregory Anderson, Jr., a two-year-old child. Walker-Madden appealed, contending only that the trial court erred when it admitted certain evidence of similar transactions. After review, the Supreme Court found no merit in that contention. However, the Court did find that the trial court erred when it failed to convict and sentence Walker-Madden for two other crimes of which the jury found him guilty. Accordingly, the Court affirmed in part, vacated in part, and remanded for the trial court to sentence Walker-Madden for cruelty to children in the first degree and aggravated sexual battery.
