Eric S. Schmitt, Attorney General, and Sarah E. Ernst, Assistant Attorney General, Jefferson City, MO, Attorneys for Respondent.

Before Division One: Mark D. Pfeiffer, Presiding Judge, and Karen King Mitchell and Gary D. Witt, Judges

Terry M. Roberts, Jr., appeals, following an evidentiary hearing, the denial of his Rule 29.15 motion for post-conviction relief.
