Summary

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Richard H. Davidson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J. (15 pages)

            Jonathan Armstrong appeals the dismissal of his application for postconviction relief, arguing trial and appellate counsel were ineffective.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our de novo review, we find Armstrong failed to demonstrate a reasonable probability of a different outcome had counsel performed in the manner Armstrong suggests. We affirm the postconviction court’s denial of relief.
