Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph A. McClusky, (on appeal); Lorna McClusky, (on appeal and at trial); and William Massey (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Victor Trezevant.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Benjamin A. Ball, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; Reginald Henderson and Ray Lapone, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

Defendant-Appellant, Victor Trezevant, appeals as of right his conviction for first degree murder committed during the perpetration of an attempted aggravated robbery, for which he received a life sentence. In this appeal, the sole issue presented for our review is whether the evidence is sufficient to support his conviction of felony murder. Specifically, Trezevant contends that the State failed to corroborate the testimony of his accomplices. After reviewing the record and the applicable authorities, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
