DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death last year in Dubuque will not get new attorneys.

The Telegraph Herald says (https://bit.ly/2cAte47 ) a judge on Thursday rejected 27-year-old Eddie Hicks’ handwritten motion requesting he be appointed a new defense attorney to replace the public defenders assigned to his case.

District Judge Thomas Bitter said there was insufficient reason for the switch.

Hicks is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2015 stabbing death of 21-year-old Kahdyesha Lemon.

The judge gave Hicks one week to discuss with his defense team possible trial dates.
