 Michael J. Baxley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-063
Submitted January 3, 2006 – Filed January 26, 2006


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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. Elliot, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia;  and  Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent. 

PER CURIAM:  A Spartanburg County jury convicted Shellra Mance of homicide by child abuse, unlawful neglect by a legal guardian, and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  The trial court sentenced her to life in prison for the homicide and ten years each on the neglect and assault charges to run concurrently. Mance appeals, arguing the trial court should have granted her motion for directed verdict.  In addition, Mance filed a pro se brief asserting ten separate grounds for appeal.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs, we dismiss[1] Mance’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991).

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and HUFF and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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