            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Paul D. Miller, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Ahlers, P.J., Badding, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (8 pages)

            Jerome Power appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR) following his conviction for first-degree murder.  Power contends his trial counsel was ineffective in failing to “investigate and present a defense based on the medical condition of his right hand,” and PCR counsel was ineffective in failing to advance his claim against trial counsel.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we affirm.
