            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Paul D. Miller, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Schumacher, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Mullins, S.J.  Opinion by Schumacher, P.J.  (22 pages).

            An applicant appeals the denial of his postconviction-relief application.  He alleges his trial counsel was ineffective due to the failure to object to several instances of prosecutorial misconduct, the failure to object to the admissibility of evidence, and the failure to pursue alternative defenses.  OPINION HOLDS: Clancy has failed to meet his burden required for postconviction relief.  Consequently, we affirm.
