Judge(s): WEDEMEYER

In 2012, the Petitioner, Brian O?Neal Elliott, pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to twenty-five years of incarceration to be served at 100%. In 2013, the Petitioner filed a pro se petition for post-conviction relief. The post-conviction court appointed counsel, who filed an amended petition for post-conviction relief alleging that the Petitioner had received the ineffective assistance of counsel. The post-conviction court held a hearing on the petition and denied relief. We affirm the post-conviction court?s judgment.
