CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. The trial for a woman accused in the death of a 4-year- old in Charlotte County could hit a snag today.
The attorney for Melissa Harding-Jones is asking a judge to excuse him from the case.
Harding-Jones is charged with aggravated manslaughter in the 1999 death of Pilar Rodriguez.
If defense attorney, Robert Barrar , is not allowed to leave the case he will likely motion to have taxpayers pay for Harding-Jones' defense.
