APPEAL DISMISSED


Robert M. Dudek, Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals, 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 the Columbia; and Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Evelyn Buckle was convicted of murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment. On appeal, Buckle’s counsel argues the judge erred by admitting statements Appellant made after a polygraph examination.  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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and PIEPER, JJ., concur.


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