US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 857 F.2d 1468 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted: May 26, 1988. Decided: Aug. 10, 1988

William David Dannelly, Denise Smith Cline (Moore & Van Allen), for appellant.

Richard Norwood League (Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina), for appellees.

Before K.K. HALL and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Robert Grady Boykin 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate 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. Boykin v. Huntley, C/A No. 86-1050-HC (E.D.N.C. Dec. 2, 1987). 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.
