Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael R. Working, Memphis, Tennessee (on appeal); Stephen C. Bush, District Public Defender, Robert T. Hall, Assistant Public Defender (at trial); Jim N. Hale, Jr., Assistant Public Defender (at sentencing), for the appellant, Anthony Bayman.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; David H. Findley, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Chris Lareau, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

A Shelby County jury convicted the Defendant, Anthony Bayman, of second degree murder, and the trial court sentenced him to thirty-two years in the Tennessee Department of Correction. On appeal, the Defendant contends that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction because the evidence supported a conviction for the lesser-included offense of voluntary manslaughter rather than second degree murder. After a thorough review of the record and applicable authorities, we affirm the trial court?s judgment.
