ORLANDO, Fla. -- Accused cop-killer Markeith Loyd is getting a new lawyer.

An Orange County judge on Tuesday appointed Miami lawyer Terry Lenamon to the case.
Loyd is also trying to disqualify Brad King as the prosecutor for his cases. Loyd filed a motion last month, but it was denied. He then filed a motion to reconsider last week.
Loyd is facing charges in the murders of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, in December 2016 and Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton a few weeks later during a confrontation at an Orange County Wal-Mart.
Judge Frederick Lauten is planning to start the first Loyd trial in January.
