Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David Nelmark, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Vogel and Mullins, S.J.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (9 pages)

            Joseph Rendon appeals the denial of his application for postconviction relief.  OPINION HOLDS: We reject Rendon’s claims that his trial counsel was ineffective for failing to present an alibi witness or for failing to further impeach the State’s witnesses.  We also find no cumulative prejudice resulted from these claims of ineffective assistance.
