Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Columbia. Solomon Blatt, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-91-3874-3-8BD)

W. Gaston Fairey, FAIREY & PARISE, P.A., Columbia, South Carolina, for Appellant.

Before HALL, MURNAGHAN, and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.


Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying relief on her 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition. 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. Barnes v. South Carolina, No. CA-91-3874-3-8BD (D.S.C. Sept. 29, 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.
