Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Matthew J. Sweeney, Gary C. Shockley and John S. Hicks, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Petitioner, Christopher A. Davis

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, and Rachel West Harmon, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General and Thomas B. Thurman and Katrin N. Miller, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Respondent, State of Tennessee

Judge(s): THOMAS

The Davidson County Criminal Court denied the Petitioner, Christopher A. Davis, postconviction relief from his convictions on two counts of first degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, and two counts of especially aggravated robbery, but granted relief from his sentence of death and ordered a new capital sentencing hearing. The Petitioner appeals the denial of a new trial and the State appeals the granting of a new sentencing hearing. Having discerned no error, we affirm the order of the trial court.
