The suspect in the murder of Adaobi Obih is back in Columbus.
Ryan Klug had his initial hearing Thursday afternoon In Bartholomew Circuit Court. At the start of the hearing, Klug indicated that he did not wish to procede without legal representation. Judge Steve Heimann explained to Klug that legal representation is extremely rare for an initial hearing. He then explained that the hearing was merely to inform Klug of the charges facing him. Once Heimann finished his explanation, Klug relented and agreed to continue with the hearing.
During that hearing, which was held via video conference, Klug told Judge Steve Heimann that he intended to hire his own attorney. He also asked the judge for a list of Bartholomew County-based defense attorneys.
Heimann set an attorney status hearing for Jan. 6. He also scheduled a change of plea hearing for April 28 and an initial trial date for May 13.
