APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Torrance McCrea was convicted of murder, assault and battery with intent to kill (ABIK), possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and discharging a firearm at or into a dwelling or occupied structure.  He was sentenced to thirty years for murder, twenty years for ABIK, five years for possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and ten years for discharging a firearm, to be served concurrently.  McCrea’s appellate counsel filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).  Counsel additionally submitted a petition to be relieved from representation, asserting there are no directly appealable issues of arguable merit.  McCrea filed a pro se response with the Court.

After a review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, STILWELL, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
