Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jun 1, 2012

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donna Orr Hargrove, District Public Defender; James O. Martin, III, Nashville, Tennessee; and Andrew Jackson Dearing, Assistant Public Defender, Shelbyville, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, David Edward Niles.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Charles F. Crawford, Jr., District Attorney General; and Michael D. Randles, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, David Edward Niles, was convicted by a Bedford County jury of first degree premeditated murder and was sentenced by the trial court to life imprisonment. On appeal, Niles argues: (1) the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence seized during the search of his residence; (2) the evidence was insufficient to sustain his conviction; and (3) the trial court abused its discretion in denying his ex parte motion for funds for a psychiatrist. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
