Yankton murder suspect wants to represent himself

Posted: Updated:

A man accused of using a hammer to kill his uncle in Yankton says he wants to represent himself.

The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that Joshua Hudson told Judge Glen Eng on Monday that he does not want legal counsel. He faces a second-degree murder charge in the March 7 death of 46-year-old Todd Hudson, along with aggravated assault and grand theft counts. He could face life in prison if convicted on the murder charge.

Joshua Hudson does have a court-appointed attorney. Eng says public defender Dan Fox will remain appointed to the case for now.

Hudson is jailed on $1 million cash bond. He is due back in court on April 14 to enter pleas.
