 Marc H. Westbrook, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2007-UP-042
Submitted January 2, 2007 – Filed January 24, 2007


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 Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Roger Dale Burke appeals his convictions and sentences to life imprisonment for murder, thirty years for burglary, twenty years for attempted arson, and five years for possession of a weapon.  His counsel contends the trial court erred in allowing a written statement to be entered when the signed statement contained summary of their conversation.  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[1] Burke’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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