Myrick v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Andre Myrick was convicted of felony murder and a firearm offense in connection with the shooting death of Kenneth Bevis. On appeal, he argued the trial court erred by denying his Batson challenge as to three prospective jurors. He also argued the court erred by denying his request for a mistrial after the jury heard a police detective refer to statements made by a witness who died before the trial and that the State committed prosecutorial misconduct by introducing this evidence. Finding no merit to these contentions, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
