Deputy Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia; for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, of Columbia; Cecil Kelley Jackson, of Sumter; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Jon Paul Smart appeals his guilty plea to murder, armed robbery, grand larceny of an automobile, conspiracy, and escape.† Counsel for Smart attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.† Smart did not file a separate pro se response.†

After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits.† Accordingly, we dismiss Smartís appeal and grant counselís petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

CONNOR, STILWELL, and HOWARD, JJ., concur.
