Criminal: EPPERSON V. COM. (SCOKY; 2/23/2006)

CRIMINAL – Murder; Sufficiency of Indictment
2003-SC-000595-MR.pdf PUBLISHED
DATE: 2/23/2006
SC affirmed Epperson’s convictions for Murder, Robbery, and Burglary, and his underlying sentence of death.   The Court rejected all 32 points of error raised in Epperson’s appeal.  The primary issue was whether the indictment was defective for failing to list all elements of all offenses for which he was charged.  SC held that the indictment was legally sufficient because it put Epperson on notice of what he was being charged with.
