Posted by: Tanja Trezise on May 24, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Norman D. Lipton, South Pittsburg, Tennessee for the Petitioner-Appellant, Randy Bray.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; James Michael Taylor, District Attorney General; Steve Strain, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The petitioner, Randy Bray, appeals from the Grundy County Circuit Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. After trial, a jury convicted him of two counts of first degree premeditated murder. In this appeal, Bray argues that he received the ineffective assistance of counsel based on a failure to file motions to suppress (1) a shotgun, (2) his statement to police, and (3) a 911 call. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the postconviction court.
