MCKIE v. THE STATE.
S94A1054.
HUNT, Chief Justice.
Murder. Richmond Superior Court. Before Judge Mulherin.
Antonio McKie and Robin Roberts abducted Mark Martin from a lounge. After an altercation, Roberts shot and killed Martin. McKie was convicted of kidnapping with bodily injury and felony murder and sentenced to concurrent sentences of life imprisonment. 1 He appeals and we affirm.
1. Having reviewed the evidence in the light most favorable to the jury's determination, we conclude that a rational trier of fact could have found the defendant guilty of the crimes for which he was convicted beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
2. We find no error requiring reversal in the defendant's remaining enumerations.
Notes
1  The crimes occurred on January 15, 1993. McKie was indicted by the Richmond County Grand Jury on February 9, 1993. Following a jury trial, April 20-April 21, 1993, McKie was convicted of kidnapping with bodily injury and felony murder.
