ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Accused cop killer, Markeith Loyd, has a hearing scheduled for Tuesday morning as he seeks to get his attorneys fired.
Loyd wrote in a handwritten motion to the judge that he wants new defense attorneys assigned. He claims that he has an adversarial relationship with his attorneys and they didn't help him get medical help after his arrest.
Loyd is facing the death penalty if convicted. He is accused of killing Lieutenant Debra Clayton outside of Pine Hills Wal-Mart in January 2017. She was pursing him because he was wanted for the December 2016 murder of his pregnant girlfriend. A manhunt for Loyd was launched after he fled the scene of Clayton's murder. Deputy Norman Lewis was killed in a motorcycle crash while searching for him.
