PER CURIAM: William Dean Burden appeals from his convictions for assault and battery with intent to kill and child abuse, arguing the trial court erred in allowing the State to introduce the victim’s prior injuries to establish the present injuries were the result of child abuse. Burden’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating he reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacks merit. Burden filed a separate pro se brief. After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Burden’s pro se brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.
HEARN, C.J. and KITTREDGE and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral arguments pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
