Unspoken Problem Could Delay Xerox Credit Union Trial

The man accused of killing someone during a Webster bank robbery could soon need new attorneys...but even the prosecutors handling his case don't know why.

Richard Leon Wilbern is awaiting trial for the fatal shooting at Xerox Federal Credit Union back in 2003.  He was arrested in 2016 after an anonymous tip.  

Today in court, his lawyers presented a possible conflict of interest in representing him.  The U.S. District judge is reviewing the motion but is not disclosing what the conflict could be. The motion is sealed, so nobody other than the judge and the defense team knows what the issue could be. 

The trial is being delayed 30-days as of now, but it could be delayed much longer if a new attorney needs to be appointed.
