Posted by: Tanja Trezise on Jan 21, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jermaine Gwin, pro se, Henning, Tennessee, as the appellant.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Attorney General and Reporter; Tracy L. Alcock, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Muriel Malone, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

The Petitioner, Jermaine Gwin, appeals from the summary dismissal of his pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus. On appeal, he argues that the trial court lacked jurisdiction to convict him because (1) his indictment failed to track the language of the second degree murder statute and (2) the indictment failed to include an essential element of the offense. Upon review of the record and applicable law, we find the issues are without merit and affirm the judgment of the habeas corpus court.
