WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Scott Roeder had $10 to his name.

A financial affidavit for the Kansas City, Mo., man charged in the killing of abortion provider Dr. George Tiller shows a man with little money and a checkered employment history.

The 51-year-old Roeder has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault in Sunday's shooting death of Tiller.

Roeder was required to sign a sworn affidavit in order to get a court-appointed attorney. In the document filed Tuesday, Roeder stated he had $10 in his bank account and no other property except his 1993 Ford Taurus.

The affidavit says he made $1,100 a month working at Quicksilver Airport Delivery _ his fourth job in the past six months. His monthly bills totaled nearly $470, most of which went to pay rent.
