OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - A man awaiting trial on several charges over a deadly standoff with police at a Wisconsin motorcycle shop lost his sixth court-appointed attorney because the lawyer said their relationship had deteriorated.
A Winnebago County judge agreed Thursday to appoint another attorney for Brian Flatoff but warned the public defender's office may run out of available lawyers to represent him if he continues to have problems with them.
Flatoff's most recent attorney described the relationship with Flatoff as "contaminated and antagonistic."
WLUK-TV and the Appleton Post-Crescent reported the development in the case.
Flatoff is accused of taking hostages during a standoff with police on December 2015 at Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah. Police killed one of the hostages, 60-year-old Michael Funk, because they mistakenly believed he was the hostage taker.
