No. 1001192.

Decided July 27, 2001.

Appeal from Dallas Circuit Court, CC-97-375; Court of Criminal Appeals, CR-99-0135.

William W. Whatley, Jr., Montgomery; and Julianna Taylor, Montgomery, for petitioner.

Bill Pryor, atty gen., and Beth Jackson Hughes, asst. atty. gen., for respondent.


The petition for the writ of certiorari is denied.

In denying the petition, we note that the discussion by the Court of Criminal Appeals in Ray v. State, 809 So.2d 875 (Ala.Crim.App. 2001), concerning the testimony of the medical examiner and the testimony of Investigator Roy Freine is unnecessary to the resolution of the issue concerning the sufficiency of the corroborative evidence.

WRIT DENIED.
