RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A 70-year-old Vermont man charged with fatally shooting two electricians who were working on his rented home last winter is asking for a new lawyer.

Sylvester Labartino of Fair Haven has been held on $750,000 bail in the Feb. 12 shooting deaths of 57-year-old Shane Plummer and his 26-year-old son Christopher, both of West Haven.

Labartino says the Rutland lawyers Mark Furlan and Christopher Montgomery have not been in touch with him since his arraignment. Furlan could not immediately be reached Friday, as his voicemail box was full, and Montgomery did not immediately respond to a message.

Judge Theresa DiMauro is scheduled to hold a hearing on Labartino’s request on Wednesday in the criminal court for Rutland County.
