Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, First Division
August 26, 2014
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent,
BRANDON MARQUIES CHASE, Appellant
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Cole County, Missouri. The Honorable Daniel R. Green, Judge.
For Respondent: Chris Koster, Attorney General, Adam S. Rowley, Assistant General, Jefferson City, MO.
For Appellant: Ellen H. Flottman, District Defender, Columbia, MO.
Before Division One: Mark D. Pfeiffer, Presiding Judge, and Lisa White Hardwick and Karen King Mitchell, Judges.
Brandon Chase was convicted, following a jury trial, of second-degree (felony) murder, section 565.021.1(2), first-degree robbery, section 569.020.1, and armed criminal action, section 571.015.1. He was sentenced to thirteen years' imprisonment. Chase raises two points on appeal. First, he contends tat the evidence was insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he acted with Tracy Session and Khiry Summers in committing the robbery. Second, he contends that the trial court plainly erred in sentencing him to a consecutive sentence of three years for armed criminal action.
We affirm. Rule 30.25(b).
