RICE v. THE STATE.
S95A1776.
HUNSTEIN, Justice.
Murder. Madison Superior Court. Before Judge Grant.
Mary Elizabeth Rice was convicted of the malice murder of Mark Berry Rice and sentenced to life imprisonment. 1 She appeals and we affirm.
We conclude that there was sufficient evidence offered by the State to corroborate the testimony of the accomplice. OCGA 24-4-8; Parkerson v. State, 265 Ga. 438 (2) (457 SE2d 667) (1995). Accordingly, we further conclude that, viewing the evidence adduced at trial in a light most favorable to the jury's determination, a rational trier of fact could have found the defendant guilty of the crime for which she was convicted beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
Lindsay A. Tise, Jr., District Attorney, Michael J. Bowers, Attorney General, Susan V. Boleyn, Senior Assistant Attorney General, Caroline W. Donaldson, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.
