In The Court of Appeals

The State,        Respondent,


Robert Brandon Duncan,        Appellant.

Appeal From Spartanburg County
J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge

Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-077
Submitted November 19, 2003 – Filed February 12, 2004


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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Robert Brandon Duncan appeals his convictions and sentences for murder, armed robbery, and possession of an explosive device.    Counsel for Duncan attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Duncan 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 Duncan’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.


HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
