Howard Jackson was indicted in Coweta Superior Court for the murder of his wife by shooting her with a shotgun. The jury returned a verdict of guilty without a recommendation for mercy. To the judgment denying his motion for a new trial, based upon the general grounds and one special ground, the defendant excepted, but, in his brief filed in this court, has abandoned the general grounds. The special ground of the motion for a new trial is based upon the admission, over the objection or that the same was prejudicial and irrelevant, of certain testimony of Sheriff A. L. Potts, who returned the defendant to Georgia from Missouri, where he first appeared some nine months after the homicide. Held:
State, 196 Ga. 508 (3)
(26 S. E. 2d 883); Calhoun v. State, 210 Ga. 180
(78 S. E. 2d 425).
