Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joseph Tipton Howell, Jackson, Tennessee, for the Defendant-Appellant, Dontavious Hendrix.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Zachary Thomas Hinkle, Assistant Attorney General; James G. (Jerry) Woodall, District Attorney General; Aaron J. Chaplin and Brian M. Gilliam, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

A Madison County jury convicted the Defendant-Appellant, Dontavious Hendrix, of one count of second degree murder. See T.C.A. § 39-13-210(a)(1). The trial court imposed a twenty-five-year sentence of confinement at the Tennessee Department of Correction to be served at 100% release eligibility. On appeal, he argues that the evidence is insufficient to sustain his conviction for second degree murder and that his sentence is excessive. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
