The defense team for Claud “Tex” McIver is falling apart, as two of his lawyers announced today that they are no longer representing the prominent Atlanta attorney accused of murdering his wife.
William Hill, who has served as lead defense attorney, filed a notice today that he is withdrawing as counsel.
Meanwhile, attorney Stephen Maples also told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution today that he is leaving the case.
Neither attorney elaborated as to the reason for their departure.
McIver is now represented solely by attorney Bruce Harvey.
McIver remains in the Alpharetta annex of the Fulton County Jail.
