DENNIS v. THE STATE.
S94A1280.
HUNT, Chief Justice.
Horace Dennis III was convicted of the armed robbery and felony murder of Paula Doggett and sentenced to 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 of error.
Notes
1  The crimes occurred on June 26, 1992. Dennis was indicted for malice murder, felony murder and armed robbery on January 23, 1993. He was tried April 12-15, 1993. The jury found him guilty of felony murder and armed robbery on April 15, 1993; the trial court merged the armed robbery conviction with the felony murder conviction and sentenced him to life in prison.
