            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Kathleen A. Kilnoski, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (11 pages)

            Jonathan Armstrong appeals following the summary disposition of his application for postconviction relief.  He argues the court abused its discretion in denying his motion for an investigator at State expense, summary disposition was inappropriate, and postconviction counsel rendered ineffective assistance.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the summary disposition of Armstrong’s postconviction relief application.
