McCray v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Don McCray was convicted of murder and other offenses arising out of the shooting death of Darius Grover. McCray’s sole defense was justification in that he acted in self defense. In his first two enumerations of error, McCray claimed the evidence was insufficient to convict him of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and also that the State failed to disprove every other reasonable hypothesis except guilt and thus failed to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Furthermore, McCray contended the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence relating to the custodial statement he gave to the authorities when he voluntarily turned himself in. McCray alleged several other errors at trial all entitled him to dismissal of the charges against him or in the least, a new trial. Finding no reversible errors, the Supreme Court affirmed.
