State of Tennessee v. Pervis Tyrone Payne (Writ Of Coram Nobis for Death Penalty)

Style: State of Tennessee v. Pervis Tyrone Payne

TSC Docket Number: W2022-00210-SC-R11-CD

Court of Appeals Opinion:

Summary by the Court of Appeals:

The Petitioner, Pervis Tyrone Payne, appeals from the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for writ of error coram nobis in which he challenged his death sentence resulting from his 1988 convictions for first-degree murder. On appeal, the Petitioner contends that he is entitled to coram nobis relief because he is intellectually disabled and, therefore, ineligible for the death penalty. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
