  Victims' families speak out amid serial killer fears in Tampa Relatives say 60-year-old Donald Felton was shot and killed on his way to a local church where he helped feed the homeless Your browser does not support this video require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_3e6f7598-e55d-4fc7-b1e4-afe4be97b8e7").all(); }); Police are intensifying their search for a suspected serial killer in Tampa, Florida, after a fourth person was shot and killed. Investigators say 60-year-old Ronald Felton was shot early Tuesday while crossing the street. His body was discovered in the same neighborhood where three people were killed last month.

The attorneys representing Kirkland, a convicted Ohio serial killer , have quit because they say he discussed his case with another attorney and they cannot ethically represent him. The judge says he will appoint new defense attorneys and Kirkland will return to court in Cincinnati on Monday, Nov.

The attorneys representing Kirkland, a convicted Ohio serial killer , have quit because they say he discussed his case with another attorney and they cannot ethically represent him. The judge says he will appoint new defense attorneys and Kirkland will return to court in Cincinnati on Monday, Nov.

Anthony Kirkland murdered four women, including a 13-year-old girl, who was attacked while she was jogging.

On Monday, the judge appointed two new attorneys to argue for Kirkland’s life.

The judge named the new attorneys because Kirkland’s original defense team withdrew from the case last week.

That happened because Kirkland was communicating with an attorney in the State Public Defender’s Office who was not working on his case.

“I’ve been doing this a long time. I’ve tried hundreds of murder cases. I’ve never seen this happen before, where somebody not representing him is actually talking to him when he’s in the jail, and basically undercutting two very good local attorneys. Basically, bad-mouthing them, calling them names, and saying that they don’t know what they’re doing,” Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier said.

When he was finally arrested, the extent of his horrific crimes — including cannibalism and necrophilia — shocked the American public.

A judge has appointed a new defense team to represent a convicted Ohio serial killer at his new sentencing hearing. The attorneys who had been representing Anthony Kirkland say they quit because he discussed his case with another attorney and they could no longer ethically represent him.

He was originally sentenced to die for killing three teenage girls and a woman between 2006 and 2009.

His final victim was 13-year-old Esme Kenney, who was abducted and murdered while she jogged along a track in Winton Hills.

An appeals court overturned the death sentence and ordered the court to hold a new sentencing hearing.

The prosecution said the recent the recent interference by the attorney in the State Public Defender’s Office is another stumbling block in an already painful case.

"This just derailed something that everyone's been working on for almost a year. It's really disappointing. It's frustrating to have to call our victim's families up and tell them that once again, there's a delay in the case,” Piepmeier said.

Kirkland’s case will be back in court in a few weeks.

Piepmeier said at that point, they should be able to pick a trial date, bring in a new jury and begin trial.
