APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Appellate Defender 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; Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Christian Kelly Bryson appeals his convictions and sentences for murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during a violent crime, arguing the trial court erred in not instructing the jury on voluntary manslaughter.  Bryson filed a separate pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs, 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.

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and Lockemy, JJ., concur.


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