S-15-0841 State v. Milton B. Dortch (Appellant)

Douglas County District Court, Honorable Marlon Polk

Attorneys: Melissa R. Vincent (Attorney General's Office) --- Glenn A. Shapiro (Schaefer Shapiro, LLP) (Appellant)

Criminal: 1st degree murder; use of weapon to commit felony

Proceedings below: Following a bench trial, the district court found Appellant guilty of both counts.

Issue: The district court erred by finding Appellant guilty of both counts because no trier of fact could find that the evidence, even when viewed and construed most favorably to the State, supported a verdict of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
