Causey v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Frank Causey was convicted of malice murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole in relation to the fatal strangulation and drowning of Lydia Ivanditti. Causey alleged the evidence was insufficient to convict him because there was no evidence placing him at Ivanditti’s home at the time of her death. Furthermore, Causey alleged the trial court erred when it admitted custodial statements he made after he allegedly invoked his right to remain silent. Finding no reversible error as to either of Causey’s contentions, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed his convictions.
