Marianne Evidente Dulana appeals the Appellate Division of the District of Guam's affirmance of her conviction of two counts of murder with special allegations of possession and use of a deadly weapon in violation of 9 G.C.A. §§ 16.40(a) (1), (a) (2) and (b), and 80.37.

We have jurisdiction pursuant to 48 U.S.C. § 1424-3(c), and we affirm for the reasons stated in the Appellate Division's opinion filed on October 1, 1996.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
