WARREN SAVAGE v. STATE OF MARYLAND.

Byline: Daily Record Staff

Criminal procedure -- Voir dire -- Batson challenge

Warren Savage was charged by indictment in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City with first-degree murder, conspiracy to murder, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony, and possession of a regulated firearm after having been convicted of a disqualifying offense. Savage was jointly tried with two co-defendants, Mashea Louise Ray-Simmons and Antionette McGouldrick. Savage, Ray-Simmons, and McGouldrick were convicted of second-degree murder, conspiracy to murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony. Only Savage was convicted of possession of a regulated firearm after having been convicted of a disqualifying offense.

Savage was sentenced to imprisonment for life plus twenty-five years. Savage's only argument on appeal is that he is entitled to a new trial pursuant to the Court of Appeals' decision in his co-defendants' appeal, Ray-Simmons v. State, 446 Md. 429 (2016), in which the Court determined that Ray-Simmons and McGouldrick were entitled to a new trial because the trial court had erred in denying their Batson challenge.
