Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 2 F.3d 1149 (4th Cir. 1993) Submitted: July 16, 1993. Decided: August 5, 1993

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, at Charleston. Charles H. Haden, II, Chief District Judge. (CA-93-180-2)

Joel E. Kaylor, Appellant Pro Se.

Stephen Raymond Van Camp, Darrell V. McGraw, Jr., Office of the Attorney General of West Virginia, Charleston, West Virginia, for Appellee.

S.D.W. Va.


Before NIEMEYER, HAMILTON, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.



Joel E. Kaylor seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge 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. Kaylor v. Trent, No. CA-93-180-2 (S.D.W. Va. May 13, 1993). 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.
