Bryan Timothy Reed was found guilty by a jury of murder in the second degree and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. In his appeal from the judgment entered on the verdict, Reed alleges that the trial court erred in four respects. Among the points relied on is the contention that the trial court erred in overruling appellant's motion for judgment of acquittal because the evidence was insufficient to sustain the verdict. Our review of this issue is confined to a consideration of all the direct and circumstantial evidence found in the record which tends to prove the defendant's guilt, and from which all reasonable inferences in favor of the State are to be drawn. State v. Allen, 555 S.W.2d 36 (Mo.App. 1977). Our review of the record causes us to find that the verdict is supported by the evidence. 1
