An Augusta man convicted of murder in 2001 after two prior trials ended with hung juries was fairly tried and convicted at his third trial, the Georgia Supreme Court has determined.
In an opinion released Monday, the state’s highest court affirmed Michael Kidd’s conviction and sentence of life in prison plus five years for the Sept. 17, 1999, shooting death of 23-year-old Ronald Davenport.
