Before RILEY, Chief Judge, BEAM and BENTON, Circuit Judges.

The State of Missouri (“the State”) appeals the district court’s*fn2 grant of the writ of habeas corpus to Eugene Kenneth Jones–an inmate serving a thirty-year sentence in prison following his conviction in Missouri state court. In its order granting habeas relief, the district court found that the Missouri court that presided over Jones’ trial violated clearly established Supreme Court law by denying Jones’ request to represent himself. The State argues that habeas relief is inappropriate because Jones procedurally defaulted his self-representation claim and, alternatively, that the claim fails on the merits because Jones did not knowingly and voluntarily waive his right to counsel. We affirm.
