Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-770
Submitted September 7, 2003 Ė Filed December 31, 2003


APPEAL DISMISSED


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:† Clarence Small appeals his convictions and sentences for murder and possession of a knife during the commission of a violent crime.† Counsel for Small attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.† Small 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 Smallís appeal and grant counselís petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

STILWELL and BEATTY, JJ., and CURETON, A.J., concur.
