Court of Appeals of Missouri, Eastern District, Second Division
February 3, 2015
MARTEZ HUNTER, Movant/Appellant,
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent
Appeal from City of St. Louis Circuit Court. Honorable Michael F. Stelzer.
FOR APPELLANT: Jeannette L. Igbenebor, Kansas City, Missouri; Danelle C. Duffy, Duffy Law Firm, LLC, Clayton, Missouri.
FOR RESPONDENT: Karen L. Kramer, Assistant Attorney General, Jefferson City, Missouri.
Before Sherri B. Sullivan, P.J., Mary K. Hoff, J., and Philip M. Hess, J.
Martez Hunter (Movant) appeals the denial of his Rule 29.15 motion for post-conviction relief without an evidentiary hearing. Movant contends that the motion court clearly erred in denying his post-conviction
motion based on his claim that trial counsel was ineffective for failing to call a witness to testify at trial. We affirm.
We have reviewed the briefs of the parties and the record on appeal and find that the motion court did not clearly err in denying post-conviction relief. An extended opinion would have no precedential value. We have, however, provided a memorandum opinion only for the use of the parties setting forth the reasons for our decision. We affirm the judgment pursuant to Rule 84.16(b).
