RICKY DAVIS, AKA RICKEY DAVIS v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Jury selection — Batson challenge

A jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City convicted Ricky Davis, also known as Rickey Davis, appellant, of voluntary manslaughter and use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence following the death of Keenan Dixon on September 18, 2014.

Appellant noted this appeal and presented two questions for review: 1. Did the circuit court err in denying a Batson challenge raised by the defense? 2. Did the circuit court err in denying a motion for mistrial?
