Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Andrea Dryer, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Schumacher, P.J., and Badding, J., and Gamble, S.J.   Opinion by Schumacher, P.J. (17 pages)

            Quintarius Brown appeals his convictions and sentences for first-degree murder and first-degree robbery.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court did not err by overruling Brown’s hearsay objections.  The court did not abuse its discretion by permitting the State to present evidence of Brown’s Facebook messages or a video Brown sent to a friend.  The court properly denied Brown’s motion for new trial.  The court did not abuse its discretion in ordering Brown to serve consecutive sentences.  We affirm Brown’s convictions and sentences.
