Toomer's tree poisoning suspect now working with 4th attorney

AUBURN, AL (WBRC) - The man accused of poisoning the historic trees at Auburn's Toomer's corner has yet another attorney.

Harvey Updyke is now on his fourth attorney. Glennon Threatt of Birmingham is now representing him. Updyke's third attorney, Jerry Blevins, filed a motion citing "irreconcilable conflict" between him and Updyke.

Updyke is out of jail, but a friend says Updyke is living out of his car because of death threats. He has a court hearing next Wednesday in Auburn.

He is expected to plead not guilty.
