Koonce v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Norman Koonce, Jr. was convicted of malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated battery, two counts of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer in connection with the 2014 killing of Quahfee Murphy and the wounding of Allen Moore III. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years. His amended motion for new trial was denied, and he appealed, asserting ineffective assistance of counsel. Finding no error, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
