Court of Appeals of Georgia.



Decided: January 24, 2018

Richard A. Mallard, District Attorney, Keith A. McIntyre, Assistant District Attorney, for appellant. Robert L. Persse, Statesboro, for appellee.

In State v. Williams, 336 Ga. App. 97, 783 S.E.2d 700 (2016), this Court reversed the trial court’s grant of Michael Lloyd Williams’s motion to suppress his statement to police following arrest. The Supreme Court of Georgia granted certiorari, vacated the decision of this Court, and directed that the case be remanded to the trial court for further clarification on the specific findings that form the basis for its legal conclusions with regard to Williams’s motion to suppress. Williams v. State, 301 Ga. 60, 799 S.E.2d 779 (2017). We therefore vacate our previous opinion, adopt the decision of the Supreme Court, and remand this case to the trial court for clarification of its findings in accordance with the Supreme Court’s decision.

Case remanded with direction.

Branch, Judge.

Miller, P. J., and Andrews, J., concur.
