Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Dawn Deaner, District Public Defender; Jeffrey A. DeVasher (on appeal), Melissa Harrison and Randi A. Hess (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Edward Warren Wise.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Brent C. Cherry, Senior Counsel; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Amy Hunter and Brian Ewald, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The defendant, Edward Warren Wise, was convicted by a Davidson County Criminal Court jury of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to a Range I sentence of six years in confinement. On appeal, he argues that the trial court erred in allowing the State to introduce the preliminary hearing testimony of a witness who died prior to trial and also challenges the sufficiency of the convicting evidence. After review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
