BRASWELL v. THE STATE.
S95A0234.
HUNT, Chief Justice.
Murder. Bibb Superior Court. Before Judge Wilcox.
James Braswell was convicted by a jury of malice murder and sentenced to life in prison. 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 crime for which he was convicted beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979).
2. Braswell's remaining enumeration of error concerning the trial court's failure to charge the jury on stalking is without merit.
