THE STATE.
S94A0733.
HUNT, Chief Justice.
Murder. Miller Superior Court. Before Judge Bishop.
Rogerick Grant was found guilty of felony murder and aggravated assault. 1 On appeal, he argues that he received ineffective assistance of counsel and that the trial court erred in giving or failing to give certain charges to the jury.
We have reviewed all of the claims of error. We hold that the evidence is sufficient under Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979); that there was no constitutional deprivation; and that there was no error in the trial court that warrants reversal or a new trial.
Charles M. Ferguson, District Attorney, J. Robert Smith, Assistant District Attorney, Michael J. Bowers, Attorney General, Marla-Deen Brooks, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.
