AFFIRMED


Senior Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

PER CURIAM: Jonathan M. Campbell appeals his conviction of murder, arguing the trial court erred in refusing to instruct the jury on accessory after the fact of murder.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authority: State v. Benton, 338 S.C. 151, 156-57, 526 S.E.2d 228, 231 (2000) (holding that an appellant cannot argue one ground in support of a jury charge at trial and another ground in support of the charge on appeal).[2]

AFFIRMED.

PIEPER, KONDUROS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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

[2] Alternatively, even if we were to find the issue on appeal preserved for review, we would affirm.  See State v. Dickerson, 395 S.C. 101, 121, 716 S.E.2d 895, 906 (2011) ("[A] defendant is not entitled to a charge on lesser-related offenses.").
