Oneonta Arson Suspect Has New Lawyer

The suspect in an arson that killed a former Oneonta firefighter has new counsel. According to WKTV Gabriel Truitt fired his attorney last week and is now being represented by a public defender. John Heller rescued his four relatives and his fiancee but was not able to get out himself. Prosecutors offered Truitt a plea deal to second degree murder charges but he hasn’t yet indicated if he will accept it.
