COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs man on trial for murder threw a laptop across a courtroom when a judge denied his request for new representation.

The Gazette reports Glen Law Galloway was put in restraints Monday after temporarily being removed from the proceedings.

The incident occurred after Galloway asked Judge Gregory Werner for a “conflict hearing,” which generally indicates an irreconcilable dispute between a defendant and his defense team.

Galloway is accused of fatally shooting Marcus Anderson and ex-girlfriend Janice Nam in May 2016.

Galloway’s attorney, deputy public defender Kim Chalmers, conceded that Galloway was responsible for both shootings, but told a jury he didn’t have a culpable mental state for either.

If the jury convicts Galloway, it must decide whether to impose life in prison or the death penalty.

Galloway was convicted of stalking Nam in 2015.
