Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-089
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed February 3, 2010   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Appellate Defender Robert Dudek, 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 Columbia; and Solicitor Jay  Hodge, Jr., of Cheraw; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Brandon Ray appeals his convictions for voluntary manslaughter and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.  He argues the trial court erred in allowing the State to introduce a statement his co-defendant made to police.  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.


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