APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Willis Weary appeals his first-degree burglary conviction and eighteen-year sentence.  Weary argues the trial court erred in admitting his statement to police and DNA evidence.  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. 

HEARN, C.J., Huff, and Geathers, JJ., concur.


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