Our review of the record and the decision of United States Magistrate discloses that this appeal from the order refusing relief under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 is without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument, deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the Magistrate. Graves v. Murray, C/A No. 86-733-R (E.D.Va., Feb. 9, 1987).
