HYDE PARK, Vt. (AP) -- A Vermont man who has been convicted twice of murder and then had those convictions reversed has fired his investigator.
The 63-year-old Dennis Tribble has been convicted twice of shooting and killing Michael Borello in 2000 but the Vermont Supreme Court overturned the verdicts.
Tribble has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, saying he acted in self-defense.
On Tuesday he told a judge that the investigator had too much work and wasn't able to do his.
The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/1eN7ZXs ) that Judge James Crucitti told Tribble he would have to find a new investigator as he represents himself in the third round of court proceedings.
