Acting Chief Appellate Attorney 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 John Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Trico D. Thompson appeals his convictions for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, Thompson argues the trial court erred in allowing the pathologist to demonstrate how the victim may have been shot.  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] the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.
