Appeal From Lee County
 Ralph F. Cothran, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-159
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed February 23, 2010


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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; Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Sharod Frazier appeals his convictions and sentences for murder, armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, arguing the State made an improper remark during closing argument and the trial court failed to issue an appropriate curative instruction.  Frazier's counsel attached a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacked merit.  After a 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] Frazier's appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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