Syllabus by the Court

1. There was no error in denying the motion to change the venue for the trial of this case.

2. There was no error in refusing to allow the defendant or his counsel to appear before the grand jury to present evidence and cross examine witnesses.

3. Prospective jurors, whose reservations toward capital punishment were such that they said they would never vote to impose the death penalty regardless of the facts in the case, were properly excluded from the jury.

4. Code Ann. § 26-1302 (Ga.L.1960, p. 266) is not subject to the constitutional attacks made on it.

5. The sanity examination of the defendant by a court-appointed, competent psychiatrist did not deny the defendant due process or equal protection of the laws.

6. Grounds of a motion for a new trial which are not argued in [225 Ga. 791] this court are deemed to have been abandoned, whether enumerated as error or not.

7. The evidence authorized the verdict.
