The Minnesota man sentenced to life in prison for killing six deer hunters in Wisconsin now wants a public defender to handle his appeal.
But, the Sawyer County Clerk of Courts says no one has been appointed yet.
Private attorneys from Milwaukee represented 37-year-old Chai Vang after he was charged with the murders that happened in November, 2004.
He was convicted by a jury this past September.
