HANCOCK COUNTY, MS

Attorney Brian Alexander will continue to represent accused killer Leo Laurent.

Alexander was in court Friday asking to be taken off the case, and to have Laurent undergo a psychiatric exam to determine if he’s fit to assist in his own defense.

Laurent is accused of killing his wife Brandi in 2007, and burying her body in the woods not far from their home.

In an exclusive interview Thursday with WLOX, Alexander said Laurent was undermining the case by sending letters to the victim’s mother.

The judge denied both requests, but did appoint another lawyer to assist Alexander.
