Unpublished Opinion No.  2011-UP-387
Submitted August 11, 2011 – Filed August 15, 2011 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Chief Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Keion Griffin appeals his convictions for murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, arguing the trial court erred in giving the jury an Allen[1] charge.  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.[2]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

SHORT, WILLIAMS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


[1] Allen v. United States, 164 U.S. 492 (1896).

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