A third attorney has asked to withdraw from representing Harvey Almorn Updyke, Junior. Earlier in the day, that number was only as high as two lawyers.
Montgomery's Jerry Blevins filed a motion to Lee County Circuit Court citing an "irreconcilable conflict" between himself and defendant Harvey Updyke Jr.
Blevins replaced Jerry Hauser, who filed a motion to withdraw from the case because of a potential conflict of interest- EARLIER IN THE DAY!!! His wife, Margaret Fitch- Hauser, is head of Auburn's department of communication and journalism.

The court appointed Hauser Friday after Philip Tyler was allowed to withdraw. Tyler, who also had been court-appointed also cited conflicts - including his former job as an assistant professor at the university.
