The State, Respondent,
Russell L. Holley, Appellant.
Appeal From York County
Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge
Opinion No. 2004-UP-468
Submitted September 15, 2004 – Filed September 16, 2004
Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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 Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Russell L. Holley appeals his convictions and sentences for murder and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. Counsel for Holley attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Holley filed 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 Holley’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
STILWELL, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.
