AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A man on death row is asking for a new trial and says he is not happy with his attorney.

Judge James Blanchard instructed that Willie Palmer be given new counsel and postponed any action until they can hold another hearing on March 11.

Palmer was convicted of the murders of his wife and stepdaughter in Burke County back in 1995.

Palmer has been tried twice before for the crime. His first trial ended in a mistrial, while he was convicted and sentenced to die during the second one. The Georgia Supreme Court threw out the death sentence.
