Before K.K. HALL, MURNAGHAN, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Lewis Henry Dean 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. Dean v. State of North Carolina, C/A No. 88-789-D (M.D.N.C. Mar. 22, 1989). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
