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.

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.
