v.

Appeal From Anderson County
 Alexander S. Macaulay, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-167
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 12, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Michael W. Barcroft, of Greenville, 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 Christina Theos Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Angela Vaughn appeals her convictions and sentences for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, Vaughn maintains the trial court erred in admitting testimony of an alleged threat to the victim, allowing hearsay testimony from the victim’s co-workers, and failing to grant a directed verdict.  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] Vaughn’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and PIEPER, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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