Before CHAPMAN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Warren E. Mickens seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.* Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Mickens v. Commonwealth of Virginia, C/A No. 89-10-R (E.D. Va. June 21, 1989). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
The case was decided by a magistrate exercising jurisdiction upon consent of the parties under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (1)
