Lay v. State

Texas Courts of Appeal
359 S.W.3d 291 (2012)


Facts

Joshua Lay (defendant) became angry at Darryl Feggett. Lay stated that he was going to kill Feggett. Lay then rode his bicycle to his home, retrieved his gun, and rode back to Feggett’s apartment. Lay shot Feggett four times, killing him. Lay was convicted of murder, but appealed, alleging that the evidence was insufficient to establish that he intended to kill Feggett as required to uphold a charge of murder.
