[¶1] Reginald Tweed appealed from a district court order denying his application for post-conviction relief from his murder conviction.
[¶2] Tweed's murder conviction and the denial of his first application for post-conviction relief were affirmed. See State v. Tweed, 491 N.W.2d 412 (N.D. 1992); Tweed v. State, 2010 ND 38, 779 N.W.2d 667. After remand for an evidentiary hearing on his second application for post-conviction relief, see Tweed v. State, 2011 ND 228, 807 N.W.2d 599, the district court found Tweed failed to demonstrate he was prejudiced by any claimed ineffective assistance of his first post-conviction counsel. Tweed argues the district court erred in concluding he failed to prove prejudice resulting from his post-conviction counsel's alleged deficient performance. We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
