ORDER

On order of the Court, the delayed application for leave to appeal is considered and, pursuant to GCR 1963, 853.2(4), in lieu of granting leave to appeal, we REVERSE the Court of Appeals judgment and REMAND the case to the Court of Appeals for consideration of the other issues raised by the defendant. The defendant was advised on the record of this proceeding that he was going to be sentenced to life in prison. There is no greater sentence and the defendant was thus adequately advised of the maximum possible sentence. People v. Jones, 410 Mich. 407, 301 N.W.2d 822 (1981); Guilty Plea Cases, 395 Mich. 96, 118, 235 N.W.2d 132 (1975); GCR 1963, 785.7(1)(b). We do not retain jurisdiction.
