Habeas corpus. Tattnall Superior Court. Before Judge Harvey.

The record supports the superior court's determination that Shelton's guilty plea to voluntary manslaughter was freely and voluntarily entered, and that his attorney competently represented him. Appellant has failed to show error in connection with any subsequent attempt, after sentencing, to withdraw the guilty plea.
