State Tennessee v. Terry Lynn King Supreme Court of Texas Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

This is a direct appeal of a death penalty sentence. Defendant, Terry Lynn King, was convicted of murder in the first degree while in the perpetration of a simple kidnapping by confinement, and armed robbery. He was sentenced to death by electrocution on the felony murder conviction, and to serve a term of 125 years on the armed robbery conviction. He challenges both convictions and sentences on several grounds, including rulings by the trial court on preliminary motions, voir dire, the admission of evidence, objections to arguments of counsel, and the courts instructions to the jury. Defendant also insists that the Tennessee Death Penalty Act, T.C.A. § 39-2-203 is unconstitutional. On consideration of the issues raised by appellant and after a review of the entire record, we are of the opinion that no reversible error was committed in either the convicting or sentencing phase of the trial, that the verdicts and sentences are sustained by the evidence, and, particularly, that the sentence of death under the circumstances of these convictions is in no way arbitrary or disproportionate. We therefore affirm the convictions, and the sentence of death.
