Appellant was indicted on two counts of housebreaking and larceny. He was tried before a jury, convicted as charged, and sentenced. On this appeal he raises questions concerning the instructions given the jury by the trial judge. No objections to the now-disputed instructions were made in the trial court. We have examined the record and considered the briefs, and we find no error requiring reversal.
