it appearing that no objections have been filed to the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Angell; it further appearing, after review of this matter, that Magistrate Judge Angell's Report and Recommendation correctly determined the legal and factual issues presented in the petition for habeas corpus relief,
IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Angell's Report and Recommendation is approved and adopted.
