Murder suspect’s lawyer removed from the case

Murder suspect French David Kanode was in Pulaski County Circuit Court Monday on a motion by his public defender, who was seeking the court’s permission to be removed from the case.
Greg Hagar told Judge Colin Campbell that he discovered in the course of investigating Kanode’s case that he has a conflict that prevents him from being able to continue representing Kanode.
Hagar did not disclose the nature of the conflict.
Judge Campbell granted the motion, then appointed David Rhodes to represent Kanode.
The case was continued to the April 30 docket call, essentially meaning the days between Monday and April 30 would not be counted towards Kanode’s right to a speedy trial.
On behalf of Kanode, Hagar filed an objection to the continuance.
Kanode was arrested Feb. 20 on indictments charging him with solicitation of murder and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the January 2008 death of Dawn Meredith Wright of Radford.
Kanode was named in the woman’s murder by Richard Forest Mabry, who pleaded guilty in December to first-degree murder in Wright’s death.
Mabry claims Kanode told him to murder Wright as part of an initiation, known as “blood in – blood out,” into the Pagan’s Outlaw Motorcycle Gang. According to Mabry, Kanode allegedly represented the gang.
Mabry is serving 30 years of a 50-year prison sentence for Wright’s murder.
Wright’s body was found several feet off a gravel road in the "Bloomer’s Mountain" section of the county Jan. 23, 2008.
An autopsy determined Wright died of multiple stab wounds to the chest and back.
