Lawyer Bows Out Of Easthampton Murder Case

(Northampton, MA)  —  Judge Bertha Josephson has allowed public defender Paul Rudof to withdraw from the Ryan Welch murder case.  Welch has insisted upon defending himself at his upcoming trial in October.  Rudof wanted to walk away earlier, but was told he would still be needed on a standby basis.  On Monday, the judge said she’d work to find a replacement.  Welch is accused of slashing his girlfriend’s throat in her Easthampton apartment last year.
