Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender; Harry E. Sayle, III (on appeal), Kamilah E. Turner and Gregory T. Carman (at trial), Assistant Public Defenders, for the appellant, Dameon Williams.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Jeffrey D. Zentner, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Patience R. Branham and Samuel D. Winnig, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

Following a jury trial, the defendant, Dameon Williams, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, a Class C felony, and sentenced as a Range I, standard offender to six years in the county workhouse. On appeal, he argues that the trial court erred in admitting an autopsy photograph of the victim’s skull and that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction. Based upon our review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
