Calling it "a sad day for the justice system," Judge Patrick Dinkelacker granted the attorneys' request after they said that he had discussed his case with another attorney.

Kirkland was convicted of four murders, including the death of 13-year-old Esme Kenney, but a successful appeal brought his case back before a judge earlier this year.

Perry Ancona and Norm Aubin, two of the top death penalty defense attorneys in town, said they do not feel like they can represent Kirkland because a single attorney with the State Public Defender's Office called them "a*******" and said they wouldn’t represent him well.

Ill inmate suggests firing squad as execution alternative

  Ill inmate suggests firing squad as execution alternative A condemned inmate scheduled to die this month for the slaying of a teenage boy said officials should execute him by firing squad because his breathing problems and poor veins make him too ill to be killed by lethal injection. Ohio lawmakers could quickly approve legislation allowing the firing squad to be used as an alternative execution method for the first time in the state, attorneys for death row inmate Alva Campbell said in a court filing late last month.

Kirkland has been placing calls to someone from State Public Defender's office, his attorneys said. Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier said "clowns in Columbus" engaged in egregious conduct by talking to Kirkland about his re-sentencing when they are not his attorneys.

Motions were heard last month before Dinkelacker as prosecutors and the defense prepared for a today's unusual re-sentencing hearing.

Kirkland was convicted of murder and a list of other charges in the deaths of Cassonya Crawford, MaryJo Newton, Kimya Rolison and Esme Kenney. The jury that heard the case in 2010 recommended the death penalty in two of those murders.

After an appeal, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled Kirkland was entitled to a new sentencing hearing.

The jury that considers his fate will hear about the horror of his crimes, including visiting the crime scenes.

Dinkelacker set a new hearing for Monday and said that new attorneys would be appointed.
