Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Thomas A. Bitter, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Mullins, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (9 pages)

            Lloyd Haywood appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  OPINION HOLDS: We find Haywood failed to carry his burden to prove either first or second trial counsel provided Haywood with ineffective assistance.  We preserve the claim of ineffective assistance toward PCR counsel for a possible future PCR claim.  Finally, we find Haywood failed to meet his burden to prove his actual-innocence claim.
