ORLANDO, Fla. - Markeith Loyd's attorney is getting the money he says he's owed.
A judge approved payments upward of $68,000 for the attorney in a hearing Tuesday afternoon.
The judge called the fees and related expenses a result of "unusual and extraordinary circumstances."
The attorney represented Loyd in the murder trial of Loyd's ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon.
Loyd was convicted last month.
His trial for the murder of Orlando Police Lieutenant Debra Clayton is scheduled for next year.
