Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Under familiar principles of appellate review, the appellate court views the evidence and all reasonable inferences fairly deducible from that evidence in the light most favorable to the party that prevailed below.
  • The holdings in Heacock and Hylton that Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-33 encompasses all felonious acts not expressly excluded, necessitate the conclusion that the statute includes felonious driving while intoxicated. Furthermore, driving while intoxicated or recklessly is a felony considered to be inherently dangerous. By implication, it presents a substantial risk to life. Reckless driving is dangerous and demonstrates a reckless disregard for human life in the context of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-371.1. The increased risk of death or serious harm occasioned by the commission of’ felony of driving while intoxicated demonstrates an appellant’s lack of concern for human life and constitutes the justification for imputing malice.
