Double-murder defendant changes his mind

Patrick Drum, 34, accused of killing two Sequim-area men in June, changed his mind in court today and requested defense attorney Karen Unger be reappointed to represent him.


"I've got a lot of people who care about me begging me to keep my counsel so I will do that," Drum said to Judge Ken Williams at a hearing.


Unger requested the Aug. 6 trial date be continued to Oct. 22. Prosecutor Deb Kelly and Judge Williams agreed to the continuance.


The next hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 14.
