v.

Stanley Wise Appellant.


Appeal From Spartanburg County
James E. Lockemy, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-001
Submitted January 2, 2008 – Filed January 2, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Stanley Wise appeals his convictions for murder, two counts of assault and battery with intent to kill (ABWIK), and three counts of possession of a firearm while in the commission of a violent crime, as well as his sentences of life imprisonment for murder, ten years for each ABWIK charge, and five years for each possession of a firearm charge, all to run concurrently.  Wise contends the trial court erred by admitting certain evidence because its presence in the jury room during deliberations unduly emphasized the evidence.  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] Wise’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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