In The Court of Appeals

The State, Respondent,

v.

Kenwood Bright, Appellant.


Appeal from Marlboro County
William H. Seals, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-288
Submitted April 2, 2012 - Filed May 9, 2012


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, and Kenwood Bright, pro se, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor William B. Rogers, Jr., of Bennettsville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Kenwood Bright appeals his conviction of murder, arguing the trial court erred in allowing the State to argue the principle of flight during closing arguments because Bright was unaware at the time he left the scene of the incident that the victim had died from his wounds. Additionally, Bright filed a pro se brief. After a thorough review of the record and all 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.

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


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