Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donna Miller and Lorrie Miller (at trial) and Donna Miller (on appeal), Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Quinisha Renee Brabson.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Clarence E. Lutz, Senior Counsel; William H. Cox, III, District Attorney General; and Brian Finlay and Matthew Rogers, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WILLIAMS

The defendant, Quinisha Renee Brabson, was convicted after a jury trial of second degree murder, a Class A felony. On appeal, the defendant challenges the sufficiency of the evidence, asserting that the defendant should either have been acquitted as acting in selfdefense or convicted only of the lesser-included offense of voluntary manslaughter. After a thorough review of the record, we conclude that the evidence was sufficient to support the verdict, and we accordingly affirm the judgment of the trial court.
