Date Published:
Mar 30, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Buchanan County, David P. Odekirk, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Mullins, S.J.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (6 pages)

            Michelle Kehoe appeals from the district court order granting the State’s motion for summary disposition and dismissing her application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: Even if we apply the relation-back framework to Kehoe’s successive PCR application, Kehoe’s PCR application was not filed promptly after the conclusion of her first PCR action.  Therefore, we affirm the denial of the application.
