Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Appellant pled guilty to murder and was sentenced to thirty years in prison. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Appellant’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved. Appellant has filed a pro se response.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. 
HOWARD, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
