MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) -- The Michigan man accused of gunning down three teens near the Wisconsin-Michigan border may get a new lawyer.
Defense attorney Len Kachinsky has asked to withdraw from the case. According to WLUK-TV, Kachinsky says he's having conflicts with his client, 38-year-old Scott J. Johnson of Kingsford, Mich.
Johnson is due in court Wednesday afternoon for a motion hearing.
Johnson is accused of ambushing a group of young people swimming in the Menominee River in July, killing three and injuring a fourth.
He has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to 10 felonies in the shootings. A judge ordered three psychologists to examine him and file reports by Dec. 1.
If a new attorney is assigned, Johnson's March trial could be delayed.
