Miller v. State

Defendant was charged with felony attempted murder and felony aggravated battery. The trial judge adjudged Defendant guilty but mentally ill on both counts. Defendant appealed, arguing in part that the State did not present sufficient evidence that he had the specific intent to kill, as required for attempt murder. The court of appeals reversed Defendant’s attempted murder conviction and remanded for a new trial. The State sought transfer. The Supreme Court granted transfer and reversed Defendant’s conviction for attempted murder, holding that a remand was required for the trial court to reconsider the case under the correct legal standard to the existing evidence.
