Glen Rogers, suspected of killing women in several states, got a new attorney in Tampa on Friday. Rogers, who is charged locally with the stabbing death of Tina Marie Cribbs of Gibsonton, complained to the judge about a "lack of communication" with the assistant public defender assigned to represent him and said the attorney did not have enough time to work on his case. Although Rogers previously had said he wanted to represent himself, he dropped that request when Circuit Judge Diana Allen appointed private attorney Nick Sinardi to the case. Rogers' trial is set for Oct. 21. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
