An Iroquois County judge last week denied a request by a murder suspect's attorney to allow him to withdraw from the case because he has not been paid for services provided.
After denying the motion, Judge Gordon Lustfeldt scheduled a hearing for June 18 to set a trial date and deadlines for any pretrial motions.
Attorney Ed Glazar Jr. of Kankakee said in his motion that his client, 34-year-old Andrew M. Condon of rural Ashkum, "has failed to pay the contracted attorney's fees." Glazar asked to be allowed to withdraw from representing Condon. The defendant remains at the Iroquois County Jail on a $1 million bond.
Condon has pleaded innocent to two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the October 2012 fatal shooting of 27-year-old Jonathan Rubin of Danforth, at the Shell gas station in Gilman where Rubin worked.
