APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Appellate Defender Robert Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Shawn Williams appeals his conviction for murder, causing the death of a child in utero during the commission of a violent crime, and possession of a knife during commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, his counsel argues the trial court erred in denying his directed verdict motion.  Williams also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Williams's pro se 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. 

FEW, C.J., and HUFF and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.
