James Oliver Black bludgeoned 75-year-old Wesley Phillips to death with a hammer and then robbed him. He was convicted of malice murder and armed robbery and sentenced to consecutive life terms. 1
We affirm but remand to the trial court for a determination of Black's claim of ineffective assistance of trial counsel.
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 Black guilty of malice murder and armed robbery beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
2. Contrary to Black's arguments, there was no evidence to support his requests to charge on justification and self-defense. Accordingly, the trial court did not err in refusing to give those charges. Satterfield v. State, 248 Ga. 538 (2) (285 SE2d 3) (1981)
3. We have reviewed the remaining enumerations of error and hold the defendant has presented no grounds entitling him to a new trial.
J. Reese Franklin, for appellant.
