Judge:  DROWOTA

First Paragraph:

The appellant, death row inmate Robert Glen Coe, challenges on both
legal and factual grounds the trial court's order of February 2, 2000,
finding that he is  presently competent to be executed under Ford v.
Wainwright, 477 U.S. 399, 106 S. Ct. 2595, 91 L. Ed.2d 335 (1986) and
Van Tran v. State, 6 S.W.3d 257 (Tenn. 1999).  We have carefully
reviewed de novo each of the legal claims raised by the appellant and
conclude that none have merit.  In addition, we have thoroughly
reviewed the record in this appeal and conclude that the evidence
fully supports and does not preponderate against the trial court's
finding that the appellant is presently competent to be executed under
the standard set forth in Van Tran.
