D. Md.


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


James Calvin Weddle appeals from 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 grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, deny a certificate of probable cause, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Weddle v. Singleton, CA-89-2761 (D. Md. Mar. 7, 1990). 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.
