Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Brent C. Cherry, Senior Counsel; John W. Carney, District Attorney General; Steve Garrett, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

A Montgomery County jury convicted the Defendant, Corey D. Gilbert, of first degree felony murder and attempted aggravated robbery. The trial court imposed a mandatory life sentence for the felony murder conviction and a three-year sentence for the attempted aggravated robbery conviction. On appeal, the Defendant challenges the evidence supporting his conviction for attempted aggravated robbery as the underlying offense for the felony murder conviction. After a thorough review of the record and applicable law, we affirm the trial court’s judgments.
