Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Robert R. Merhige, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-90-638-3)
Thomas Kirk Doyle, appellant pro se.
Katherine Baldwin Toone, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, Va., for appellees.
Before MURNAGHAN, WILKINSON and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.
Thomas Kirk Doyle seeks to appeal 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 deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Doyle v. Murray, CA-90-638-3 (E.D.Va. Apr. 29, 1991). 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.
