v.

Timothy Player, Appellant.


Appeal From Dorchester County
 Diane Schafer Goodstein, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-185
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 19, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor David Michael Pascoe, Jr., of Saint Matthews, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Timothy Player, a prison inmate, appeals his conviction for assault and battery with intent to kill in connection with the stabbing of a fellow inmate.  Player argues the circuit court erred in failing to grant his motions for directed verdict because the evidence against him was purportedly insufficient.  Player did not file a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.   

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, KITTREDGE, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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