Gannon Stauch case: Stepmom tries to fire attorneys again

Stepmom in Gannon Stauch case attempts to fire public defenders again

Letecia Stauch fired the defense attorneys in February and had planned to represent herself in her first-degree murder trial.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo – A trial for Letecia Stauch, the stepmother accused of killing 11-year-old Gannon Stauch, ended with Stauch trying again to fire the public defenders she successfully sacked in February.

Stauch filed a motion last Wednesday to seek advice about two months after asking to represent herself at her murder trial.

Fourth District Judge Gregory Werner ruled last Friday that Stauch would be represented by Colette LeBeau and Kathryn Strobel, the same public defenders who fired her in late February.

Stauch was suspended from the El Paso County prison library for 90 days after refusing to use the library twice during its scheduled time. The library was the only place she could see the nearly 30,000 pages of discoveries about her case.

Referring to a recent letter from Stauch asking for a lawyer other than the public defenders, Werner sent it to Judge William Bain for a dispute hearing on Wednesday. Bain was the presiding judge at Stauch’s February 19 hearing when she requested the dismissal of her attorneys.
