COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) - The federal criminal trial for a Columbus man accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm has been pushed back to next year because the defendant has a new attorney, 24-Hour News 8 news partner The Republic reports.
Eric Koselke, an Indianapolis criminal defense attorney, will now represent Samuel Sallee. Sallee asked for a new lawyer because he says his former lawyer, U.S. District Court Public Defender Gwendolyn Beitz, had a conflict of interest and lack of experience.

Sallee is also the prime and only suspect in the death of four Waynesville residents.
