Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-172
Submitted March 1, 2006 – Filed March 22, 2006   


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Leroy A. McKenzie appeals his convictions and sentences of life, thirty years, and five years for murder, burglary in the first degree, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, respectively.  McKenzie argues the trial court improperly allowed hearsay testimony causing incurable prejudice.  Also, McKenzie filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs 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[1] McKenzie’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

BEATTY, SHORT, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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