Georgia v. WilliamsAnnotate this Case
Graham Williams was indicted by grand jury of distributing heroin and felony murder predicated upon the unlawful distribution of the heroin. Both charges arose out of the overdose death of Leslie Ivey. Six months after the indictment, the trial court dismissed it, concluding the evidence presented a pretrial hearing did not show Williams was, in fact, guilty of distributing heroin. The State appealed. After review, the Georgia Supreme Court reversed and remanded this matter for trial.
