CHAMBERS v. THE STATE.
A91A1161.
BIRDSONG, Presiding Judge.
Armed robbery, etc. Charlton Superior Court. Before Judge Holton.
In Chambers v. State, 201 Ga. App. 245 (410 SE2d 771), the trial court erroneously commenced trial before this court had issued remittitur. Accordingly, we vacated the judgment of the trial court and ordered the case be remanded with direction that a necessary nunc pro tunc order be issued in accordance with the procedure of Knox v. State, 113 Ga. 929 (39 SE 330) to reinvest the trial court with the requisite jurisdiction over the proceeding. In Chambers v. State, 262 Ga. 200 (415 SE2d 643), the Supreme Court reversed our judgment and the holding of Division 1 of our opinion and concluded that the trial court lacked jurisdiction of the case when it proceeded to trial and that Chambers' subsequent conviction is void.
Harry D. Dixon, Jr., District Attorney, Lucy J. Bell, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
Adams & Brooks, J. Kelly Brooks, John B. Adams, for appellant.
DECIDED JUNE 1, 1992.
