UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A prosecutor is asking a judge to disqualify lawyers representing a father and son charged in the stabbing death of a man in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Forty-two-year-old Robert Daniels Jr. and 18-year-old Robert Daniels III are charged in Fayette County in the June 2011 stabbing death of 56-year-old David Gida following a party in the victim’s apartment in Connellsville, about 55 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The defendants are represented by different attorneys working at the same law firm. Assistant District Attorney Anthony Iannamorelli argues in motions filed this week that having attorneys from the same firm representing clients with different interests is a conflict of interest because it could limit their representation of their clients.
