JACKSON v. THE STATE.
S92A0549.
WELTNER, Presiding Justice.
Murder, etc. Fulton Superior Court. Before Judge Daniel.
Dwayne Jackson was convicted of shooting and killing Ronnie Smith with a firearm. See Byrd v. State, 261 Ga. 808 (411 SE2d 709) (1992) for the factual circumstances. The verdict against Jackson included findings of guilty of felony murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony pursuant to OCGA 16-11-106 (b) (4). 1 Jackson was sentenced to life imprisonment.
1. We have reviewed the evidence of Jackson's conviction and hold that the evidence is sufficient under Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
2. Jackson's sole enumeration of error on appeal is that the trial court should have granted his motion for new trial on the ground of ineffective assistance of counsel. Under the standard of Strickland v. Washington, 466 U. S. 668 (104 SC 2052, 80 LE2d 674) (1984), there is no error.
Notes
