IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Rice's Report and Recommendation is approved and adopted.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Horton's Written Objections to the Report and Recommendation of U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy R. Rice are overruled.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner's Supplemental Objections to the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Timothy R. Rice are overruled.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner's Application for Certificate of Appealability is denied.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner's Motion to Strike is granted.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner's Motion to Correct Procedural Defects With Requested Relief is withdrawn.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court mark this case closed for statistical purposes.
