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 Donald J. Zelenka, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Randolph Murdaugh, III, of Hampton, for Respondent. 

PER CURIAM:  Christopher Franklin appeals his conviction for murder and sentence of life imprisonment.  Franklin argues the trial court erred in failing to instruct the jury on self-defense.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s 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 Franklin’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]
