An attorney representing one of the men charged with killing a Hutchinson woman last year says he wants off the case.
Donald Snapp was appointed to represent 49-year-old Bill Joe Craig Jr., who is charged in the 2011 shooting death of Jennifer Heckel.
Snapp has filed a motion asking Reno County District Judge Tim Chambers to allow him to withdraw from the case, citing "numerous" conflicts of interest that have arisen. Craig's trial is set for July 17.
Chambers has scheduled a hearing on Snapp's request for May 25.
Craig and Charles Christopher Logsdon are charged with first-degree murder and several other charges in Heckel's death. They're both jailed on $500,000 bonds in the case.
