YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man who faces a possible death penalty if convicted of fatally beating a woman in 2015 has changed his mind about representing himself.

The Vindicator in Youngstown reports (https://bit.ly/2vfRx2I ) Lance Hundley made the decision to ask that his court-appointed attorneys be reinstated following a Monday court hearing.

The newspaper says the hearing involved Hundley’s request to suppress a brief statement he made to police the day of his arrest because of an alleged violation of his Miranda rights. A Mahoning County judge granted that request, and the 47-year-old Hundley questioned the detective assigned to his case.

The Vindicator reports the judge then agreed to reinstate the attorneys at Hundley’s request after the hearing.

Hundley has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder in 41-year-old Erika Huff’s 2015 slaying.
