Tift county - - The death penalty trial will soon begin for another man charged with killing six Mexican immigrants. 

20 year old Stacey Sims appeared in court Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing. Before he goes to trial, Judge Gary McCorvey wants to remove Attorney Clark Landrum from representing Sims.

McCorvey says that's because Landrum is also representing Jamie Underwood, the other man charged in the crime.

Underwood had his pre-trial hearing last week. Judge McCorvey will appoint another public defender to represent Sims and then set his trial date.

Both men are charged with a brutal attack that left six people dead in Tift County back in September 2005 and other crimes on a Hispanic family in Colquitt county.
