BOYSWORTH v. THE STATE.
S93A0701.
HUNT, Presiding Justice
Murder. Richmond Superior Court. Before Judge Pickett.
Bobby Eugene Boysworth, Jr. was convicted of felony murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. 1 He appeals, and we affirm.
1. After reviewing the evidence in a light most favorable to the jury's determination of guilt, we conclude that a rational trier of fact could have found the defendant guilty of the offenses charged. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
2. The defendant's remaining enumerations of error are without merit.
Notes
1  The homicide occurred on February 2, 1991. Boysworth was found guilty of felony murder, with aggravated assault as the underlying felony, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime on June 12, 1992; he was sentenced to life imprisonment for felony murder and five years imprisonment for possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, sentences to run consecutively.
