Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wapello County, Joel D. Yates, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., Chicchelly, J., and Doyle, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, S.J.  (7 pages)

            Michael Bibby appeals his conviction on a charge of attempt to commit murder and the sentences imposed on his convictions for willful injury and first-degree robbery.  OPINION HOLDS: Viewing the evidence and the inferences taken from it in the light most favorable to the State, a reasonable juror could find Bibby had the specific intent to commit murder.  Because there were multiple assaults or threats from which the jury could find Bibby committed robbery, it is not necessary to merge Bibby’s convictions of willful injury and first-degree robbery.
