Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 872 F.2d 417 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted Jan. 20, 1989. Decided March 22, 1989

Lester Wayne Jones, appellant pro se.

Richard Bain Smith, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, for appellee.

Before PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Lester Wayne Jones 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. Jones v. Murray, C/A No. 88-295-N (E.D. Va. July 25, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
