A convicted murderer in Bedford County who is trying to get a new trial has fired his attorneys.  The Altoona Mirror reports John Gerholt fired the team because he says they didn't explain his plea agreement meant life in prison.  This comes just days after Gerholt filed a lawsuit claiming the Bedford County Jail Warden assaulted him.  The DA's Office suggested if Gerholt gets a new trial they will argue for the death penalty.  Gerholt was convicted of killing his estranged wife outside a McDonalds in Everett.
