Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Melissa A. Downing (on appeal), Covington, Tennessee, and Leslie I. Ballin (at trial), Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dwight Michael Alston.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Zachary T. Hinkle, Assistant Attorney General; D. Michael Dunavant, District Attorney General; and James Walter Freeland, Jr., Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): OGLE

A Tipton County Circuit Court Jury convicted the Appellant, Dwight Michael Alston, of first degree premeditated murder, and he received a life sentence. On appeal, the Appellant contends that the evidence is insufficient to support the conviction because it fails to show he premeditated the killing. Based upon the record and the parties’ briefs, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
