Criminal Procedure — ineffective assistance

Brandon J. Mueller appeals from a judgment convicting him of first-degree intentional homicide and mutilation of a corpse and from an order denying his motion for postconviction relief. He argues that the facts underlying the mutilation charge effectively assured the jury would reject a lesser degree of homicide, such that the failure to at least present the option of pleading guilty or no contest constituted ineffective assistance of counsel. We disagree and affirm the judgment and order. This opinion will not be published.
