Purdue University shooting suspect wants new lawyer
TIPPECANOE COUNTY (April 22, 2014)– The man accused in a deadly shooting on Purdue’s campus earlier this year wants new representation.
Monday, Cody Cousins’ lawyer Robert Gevers filed a motion to withdraw with the Tippecanoe Superior Court 2. According to the document, 23-year-old Cousins fired Gevers over the phone. Additionally, Gevers stated the two met during the week of April 7, when Cousins again told Gevers he did not want him to represent him.
Cousins is charged with shooting and stabbing 21-year-old Andrew Boldt to death in the Electrical Engineering Building on Jan. 21.
The judge has yet to rule on the motion.
It is unclear why Cousins wants a change in representation.
Cousins has another status hearing scheduled for next month. His trial is set to begin in October.
