Attorney appointed for Michael Lawrence

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The man accused of two local murders has been appointed an attorney.

The Saginaw News reports that rather than having to postpone hearings, court officials appointed Saginaw attorney William D. White to represent Michael Lawrence.

Lawrence is charged with murder in the 2012 drive-by homicide of 6-year-old Layla Jones and Lawrence's ex-girlfriend Angelica Olivarez.

At the first arraignment, Lawrence told the judge he had the funds to hire his own lawyer.

Saginaw County Judge Terry Clark gave him until Friday to have an attorney make an appearance. When no lawyer had done so, one was assigned.

Lawrence will appear in court again on October 14.
