In view of the disposition we make of this case, a statement of the facts will not be necessary. Suffice it to say that the evidence of the state reveals that appellant shot the deceased with a gun. Appellant objected to the introduction of his written statement into evidence. Relying on Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368, 84 S. Ct. 1774, 12 L. Ed. 2d 908, he contends that the trial court committed reversible error by not conducting a hearing on the voluntariness of the statement or confession. No independent findings were made by the court, nor was the issue submitted to the jury in the courts charge.
