The Petitioner, Ronald Yates, appeals the Shelby County Criminal Court’s denial of his petition for post-conviction relief from his convictions for first degree murder and attempt to commit first degree murder and his sentence of life plus twenty-three years. The Petitioner contends that he received the ineffective assistance of appellate counsel. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
