After a non-jury trial, appellant Michael Walls was found guilty of aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, recklessly endangering another person, theft and unauthorized use of an automobile. His post-verdict motions were denied.
On December 21, 1981, appellant was sentenced. At some unspecified time, appellant filed a motion to modify his sentence.*fn1 On January 4, 1982, the lower court vacated the judgment of sentence pending its consideration of the motion. Appellant filed a notice of appeal from the original judgment of sentence on January 20, 1982. One day later, on January 21, 1982, the lower court granted appellant's motion and modified the original judgment of sentence; thereby vacating the judgment of sentence now on appeal.
The judgment now on appeal having been vacated is a nullity. This appeal is therefore quashed without prejudice
