Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-140
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 3, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, of Columbia; and Solicitor David Michael Pascoe, Jr.,  of St. Matthews, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Teddy L. Pyatt appeals his conviction for murder as well as his sentence of life imprisonment.  Pyatt’s counsel argues the trial court erred in excluding relevant evidence.  Pyatt did not file a pro se brief.  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] Pyatt’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and GOOLSBY and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


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