MOTION GRANTED

PER CURIAM

Joy Danielle Doss was found guilty by a jury of capital murder and sentenced to life imprisonment without parole, in 2001. We affirmed. Doss v. State, 351 Ark. 667, 97 S.W.3d 413 (2003).

Doss subsequently filed in the trial court a timely petition for postconviction relief pursuant to Ark. R. Crim. P. 37.1 seeking to have the judgment vacated. A hearing was held, and the petition was denied. We then granted Doss's motion for rule on the clerk to lodge the record on appeal belatedly. Doss v. State, CR 04-460 (Ark. June 3, 2004) (per curiam).

Appellant Doss later sought and was granted an extension of time to file her brief. Doss v. State, CR 04-460 (October 14, 2004) (per curiam). Two copies of appellant's brief were filed in a timely manner with a motion to have the brief duplicated at public expense. The motion was denied, and the appellant was directed to submit the seventeen copies of the brief required by Ark. Sup. Ct. R. 4-3(d). Doss v. State, CR 04-460 (Ark. February 3, 2005) (per curiam). Appellant then filed another motion for duplication of brief at public expense and a motion for extension of time to file the brief. The motion for duplication of brief at public expense was denied. The motion for extension of time to file the brief was granted. Doss v. State, CR 04-460 (Ark. April 7, 2005). Appellant re-filed her brief in the allotted time and provided the requisite seventeen copies of the brief. We then granted a motion filed by appellee asking that we direct appellant to comply with Ark. Sup. Ct. R. 4-2(a)(5).

Now before us is a motion by Appellant for extension of time to file the corrected brief. Appellant seeks an additional fifteen days' time. This motion is granted and appellant is afforded an additional fifteen days' time to submit her brief from the date of this opinion.
