Before ANDERSON, and PREGERSON, Circuit Judges, and TASHIMA,**  District Judge.


Roosevelt Turner appeals from the district court's denial of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. After reviewing the record, we are satisfied that the district court's denial of habeas relief was correct. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated in the district court's well-reasoned opinion. 599 F. Supp. 1358 (D. Nev. 1984).


The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a) and Ninth Circuit Rule 3(f)
