Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, Third Division
September 30, 2014
TRAVIS L. KNOTT, Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri. The Honorable Joel P. Fahnestock, Judge.
Amy M. Bartholow, Columbia, MO, for appellant.
Richard A. Starnes, Jefferson City, MO, for respondent.
Before Division Three: Gary D. Witt, Presiding Judge, Joseph M. Ellis, Judge and Thomas H. Newton, Judge.
Appellant Travis L. Knott was convicted in the Circuit Court of Jackson County of second-degree (felony) murder, first-degree robbery, and two counts of armed criminal action. In his motion for post-conviction relief, Knott alleged that his trial and appellate counsel were ineffective for failing to raise a claim of double jeopardy as to the two counts of armed criminal action. The motion court denied relief following an evidentiary hearing. We affirm the denial of that motion. Because a published opinion would serve no jurisprudential purpose, the parties have been provided a memorandum setting forth the reasons for this order. Rule 84.16(b).
