STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) – An accused killer from Plover has a new attorney and a new trial date.

Attorney Jeffrey Jazgar of Green Bay will represent Michael Haydon, who is scheduled to go on trial January 24, 2011. The trial is scheduled for two weeks.

Haydon is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the November 2003 shooting death of Kolbe and Kolbe trucker Pat Zemke. Prosecutors believe Haydon killed Zemke in a case of mistaken identity, wrongly believing that Zemke was having an affair with an ex-girlfriend.

Zemke died in the cab of his truck on an I-39 off-ramp.

A Portage County judge let Haydon find a new attorney since he and his old lawyer disagreed on legal strategy.

Haydon is serving a 25-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting the ex-girlfriend hours before the alleged murder.

In January, the state Supreme Court upheld his conviction and refused to review his case on appeal. Haydon had claimed that the trial judge erred in not letting him introduce some taped phone messages between him and the woman.
