Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, 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  Warren Blair Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:   Steven Mullis appeals from his guilty plea to murder.  The plea judge sentenced him to forty-two years imprisonment.  Mullis’ counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating he reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  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 Mullis’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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