Wade Wilson, the man accused of killing two Cape Coral women in 2019, now has a new attorney after putting in a request for it on Thursday.

On Thursday morning, Wilson claimed that he needs a new attorney because he currently has ineffective counsel.

The judge appointed Lee Hollander to be Wilson’s new attorney.

Wilson is accused of murdering Kristine Melton and Diane Ruiz in Cape Coral. He faces the death penalty.

His next court date is August 17.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
