2010AP1316-CR State v. Hicks

Criminal Procedure
Ineffective assistance

Marcus A. Hicks appeals the judgment entered after a jury convicted him of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, while armed, as a party to the crimes, and one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, while armed, as a party to the crime. See Wis. Stat. §§ 940.01(1)(a), 939.63, 939.32, 939.05. Hicks also appeals the order denying his motion for postconviction relief. He argues that his trial lawyers gave him constitutionally deficient representation: (1) by not objecting to the testimony of the interim director of the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office regarding the cause of the victims’ deaths; and (2) by not objecting to a detective’s testimony about a victim’s prior statement. We disagree and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
