Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. Glen E. Conrad, Magistrate Judge. (CA-93-441-R).
Moyston G. Henry, appellant pro se.
Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Asst. Atty. Gen., Richmond, VA, for appellee.
Before RUSSELL and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.
Appellant seeks to appeal the magistrate judge's* order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 (1988) petition. Our review of the record and the opinion 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 magistrate judge. Henry v. Murray, No. CA-93-441-R (W.D.Va. Jan. 14, 1994). 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.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 636(c) (West 1993), the parties agreed to proceed before a magistrate judge and file any appeal directly in this Court
