Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor W. Townes Jones, IV, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Donovan Anderson pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter.  The trial court sentenced him to twenty-five years imprisonment, with credit for time served.  Anderson’s counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel stating she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacked merit.  Anderson did not file a pro se response.  We dismiss pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991).  Counsel’s petition to be relieved is granted.1

          APPEAL DISMISSED. 

          GOOLSBY, HUFF, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
