NASHUA, NH (AP) – Citing an attorney-client relationship breakdown, a judge approved a new attorney for a man accused of shooting a New Hampshire pastor and bride at a wedding.

It would be the third time Dale Holloway got a lawyer. In addition to the shootings, he is charged with assaulting his first lawyer, who was seriously injured last year. Holloway has denied wrongdoing in both cases.

Holloway was last represented by Donna Brown and Brian Lee. After a recent hearing, a judge concluded that Holloway does not wish to represent himself on his charges, which include attempted murder, assault and possession of a firearm.

Holloway has been well represented by Brown and Lee, but unfortunately feels that they are “not acting in his best interests under his unique view of applicable law” and unwilling to cooperate with them, wrote Supreme Court Justice Charles Temple , in his judgment on Tuesday.

Temple said he “reluctantly” approved Holloway’s request for a new attorney, but it was imperative that Holloway develop a trusting relationship with him.
