            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mahaska County, Gregory G. Milani, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J. (8 pages)

            Mark Humphrey appeals his conviction for third-degree burglary.  OPINION HOLDS: I. When viewed in the light most favorable to the State, there is substantial evidence that Humphrey had the specific intent to commit theft when he removed a camper and two dogs from his estranged wife’s home.  II. The district court correctly applied a weight-of-the-evidence standard in denying Humphrey’s motion for new trial.  III. We cannot decide Humphrey’s claim of ineffective assistance of counsel on direct appeal.
