WEST BEND, WI (WTAQ) - The man charged with killing a Purdue University student from Wisconsin will get a public defender for his upcoming trial.
A judge in western Indiana agreed Thursday to let 23-year-old Cody Cousins drop his current defense lawyer, Robert Gevers. Both testified that they don't trust each other.
Prosecutors said Cousins shot and stabbed 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend to death in a classroom on the Purdue campus in January, while was Boldt was helping out during a class in the Electrical Engineering Building.
Authorities have not said what the motive was. A trial that was scheduled for late April has been delayed.
