Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III , South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin Scott Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Gensing George Cokley appeals his convictions and sentences for murder, attempted armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and conspiracy.  Cokley’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Cokley filed a separate pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Cokley’s pro se 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.
