Lima, OH (WIMA) -- A local murder trial is now on hold- after a man charged in a 20-13 shooting death in Lima now says he wants new representation.

Mikel Johnson was in Judge David Cheney’s court yesterday- saying he no longer wants to be represented by Joe Benavides- who was court appointed.

The case surrounds the death of 20-year-old Joshua Davenport.

The case is postponed until Judge Cheney approves new counsel.
