BROWN v. THE STATE.
54463.
SMITH, Judge.
Voluntary manslaughter. Fulton Superior Court. Before Judge Langford.
Brown was indicted for murder and convicted of voluntary manslaughter. She appeals from the trial court's denial of her motion for new trial alleging the general grounds and the special ground that the charge was erroneous. We find that Brown's enumerations of error are meritless, and we therefore affirm.
1. Since Brown did not submit a written request to charge, the trial court did not err in failing to charge the lesser included offense of involuntary manslaughter. State v. Stonaker, 236 Ga. 1 (222 SE2d 354) (1976). 2. Since there was evidence in support of the verdict, we will not disturb it. Proctor v. State, 235 Ga. 720 (221 SE2d 556) (1976).
Lewis R. Slaton, District Attorney, Joseph J. Drolet, Donald J. Stein, Assistant District Attorneys, for appellee.
Robert C. Ray, for appellant.
SUBMITTED SEPTEMBER 20, 1977 -- DECIDED OCTOBER 18, 1977.
