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

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Charles Donnell Dublin was indicted by the Aiken County grand jury for murder, assault and battery with intent to kill, armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.† Following a jury trial, Dublin was found guilty as charged and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.†

Counsel for Dublin attached a petition to be relieved to the final brief stating he had reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit. Dublin filed a pro se brief.† After a review of the record and Dublinís and counselís 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 [1] Dublinís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

CURETON, ANDERSON and HUFF, JJ., concur.
