            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey L. Poulson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (7 pages)

            James Christensen appeals the district court’s denial of his second application for postconviction relief (PCR).  Christensen argues he is entitled to a new trial based on newly discovered evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude this evidence is merely cumulative and impeaching and would not have changed the result of the trial.  We affirm the denial of his second PCR application.
