v.

David Rowe,        Appellant.


Appeal From Orangeburg County
Edward B. Cottingham, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-308
Submitted May 1, 2005 – Filed May 6, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert Douglas Robbin, of Summerville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  David Rowe appeals his conviction for murder, assault with intent to kill, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Rowe’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved to the final brief, stating he reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Rowe filed a separate pro se brief arguing the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to convict him.  After a thorough 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.

APPEAL DISSMISSED.[1]

HEARN, C.J., KITTREDGE, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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