COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA
DELBERT ORR AFRICA, APPELLANT
Appeal No. 1344 October Term 1979, from the Order of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, Trial Division, Criminal Section, Nos. 705-711 May Term 1978; Lord, Judge.
Eugene H. Clarke, Jr., Philadelphia, for appellant.
Eric B. Henson, Assistant District Attorney, Philadelphia, for Commonwealth, appellee.
Hester, Wickersham and Lipez, JJ.

[ 281 Pa. Super. Page 539]
Appellant appeals from the Order of the court below refusing to dismiss, on double jeopardy grounds, the indictments filed against him. That issue having been decided adversely to the appellants in Commonwealth v. Africa, 281 Pa. Super. 419, 422 A.2d 539 (1980), in which case appellant herein was also a co-defendant, the order of the court below is affirmed. (We note, for clarity, that appellant Delbert Orr Africa requested dismissal of the charges against him but did not request a mistrial; his position is, therefore, identical to that of Phil Smith Africa, appellant at No. 1432 October Term 1979, supra.)
