A judge has denied a request to reconsider removing the public defenders from the case of accused cop killer Davon Lymon.

Lymon is accused of murdering Albuquerque Police Department Officer Daniel Webster during a traffic stop in 2015.

The judge agreed last month there was a conflict of interest since the public defender’s office once represented the woman who was allegedly on the back of Lymon’s motorcycle that night.

Now that woman is going to be used as a key witness for the prosecution.

Lymon’s attorney asked the judge to rethink her decision earlier this month, but has not changed the judge’s decision.

His trial is set for May with a new set of attorneys.
