Robert A. Dalton, Lewisburg, Tennessee (on appeal); and Michael J. Collins, Assistant District Public Defender (at trial), for the appellant, Phillip Matthew Burgess.

Robert E. Cooper, Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel Harmon, Assistant Attorney General;Charles Crawford, District AttorneyGeneral; and WeakleyE.Barnard and Michael D. Randles, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WITT

The defendant, Phillip Matthew Burgess, appeals his Marshall County Circuit Court jury convictions of first degree premeditated murder, attempted first degree murder, and aggravated assault, raising a variety of issues for review, each of which is addressed to the trial court’s denial of his post-trial motions to compel and his motion for new trial. Discerning no reversible error, we affirm the judgments of the trial court.
