APPEAL DISMISSED


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 Salley W. Elliott, and Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: George Kennedy appeals his convictions for armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, arguing his statement to police should not have been allowed into evidence.  In his pro se brief, Kennedy also argues he was not competent to stand trial.  After a thorough review of the record, Kennedy’s pro se brief, 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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