Cain v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
A jury found appellant Terry Joe Cain guilty of malice murder and other crimes in connection with the shooting death of Matthew Mobley and the assault of Gregory Johnson. He appealed, arguing that the trial court erred in denying his motion for directed verdict, finding that his pretrial statement to law enforcement was voluntarily given, and denying his motion for mistrial. Upon consideration, the Georgia Supreme Court concluded that Cain’s claims were meritless. However, because the trial court erred in sentencing, the case was remanded for resentencing.
