A Kentucky man charged with murder may be forced to represent himself because he has repeatedly fired or threatened his attorneys during the five years his case has been pending.
Attorney Matt Farra — who represents Brown on the issue of whether he will be given an attorney for trial — told WDRB-TV that taking away Brown's right to an attorney would almost assuredly lead to a reversal of the case on appeal.
Brown was charged in 2008 with a 2004 shooting that killed 19-year-old Jennifer Nicole French.
