Officials say Murbarger’s motion was denied on Friday and the decision led to a new defender being appointed.

Murbarger was convicted in October for the murder of 15-year-old Megan Nichols in Fairfield, Illinois.

Officials say Nichols went missing in 2014, and was considered a missing person until her remains were found in 2018.
