Ramirez v. StateAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the trial court convicting Defendant of murdering twenty-three-month-old P.H. and neglecting three-year-old R.H., resulting in serious bodily injury, holding that none of the alleged errors on appeal warranted reversal.
The jury in this case found two statutory aggravators beyond a reasonable doubt and recommended life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for Defendant's murder conviction. The trial court adopted the jury's recommendation. The Supreme Court affirmed Defendant's convictions and sentences, holding that the trial court (1) did not err in its evidentiary rulings; (2) did not err in giving a supplemental jury instruction; and (3) did not err in sentencing Defendant to life without parole.
