Mr. Braddy was convicted of the first-degree murder of 5-year-old Quatisha Maycock, who died of blunt force trauma to her head in 1998. The jury voted 11-1 to recommend a death sentence and the trial court condemned him to death. This Court upheld his sentence on direct appeal and he filed a post-conviction challenge in the trial court. It was denied and this appeal followed.
