Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Monica A. Timmerman (on appeal) and Joseph McClusky (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kervin Jackson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Tracy L. Alcock, Assistant Attorney General; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Paul Goodman and Muriel Malone, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): EASTER

Defendant, Kervin Jackson, was convicted of first degree murder for the shooting death of his brother-in-law. On appeal, he argues that the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction because the State failed to establish premeditation. After a review of the evidence and authorities, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
