Submitted: August 2, 2013
Court Below—Superior Court of the State of Delaware, in and for New Castle County Cr. ID 91009844DI
Before STEELE, Chief Justice, JACOBS, and RIDGELY, Justices.
Henry duPont Ridgely, Justice
This 20th day of August 2013, after careful consideration of the parties' briefs and the record on appeal, we find it manifest that the judgment below should be affirmed on the basis of the Superior Court's well-reasoned decision dated February 26, 2013. The Superior Court did not err in concluding that appellant's ninth motion for postconviction relief was procedurally barred and that appellant had failed to overcome the procedural hurdles.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED that the judgment of the Superior Court is AFFIRMED.
