Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-322 
Submitted May 1, 2012 – Filed May 30, 2012


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, and Larry Brown, a.k.a. George Porterfield, pro se, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Senior Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, and Solicitor Daniel E. Johnson, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Larry Brown, a.k.a. George Porterfield, appeals his conviction of murder, arguing the trial court erred in failing to instruct the jury on self-defense.  Additionally, Brown 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. 

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


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