 Perry M. Buckner, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-634
Submitted November 3, 2008 – Filed November 12, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Frady appeals his convictions for grand larceny, first- degree burglary, arson, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and two counts of murder, arguing the trial court erred by precluding Frady from introducing evidence of third party guilt. 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] Frady’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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