Franklin man convicted of killing his employees asks for new lawyer
Posted: Dec 23, 2019 12:27 PM CDT
Matthew Neumann claimed there was a conflict of interest since his lawyer also worked as a court commissioner for the judge that signed off on most of the warrants in his case, and was the judge for his case for the past three years.
Both the judge and the lawyer said that wasn't a conflict of interest.
Neumann still wanted a new lawyer regardless and the motion was granted.
Sentencing is set for Jan. 31.
