ROCKFORD (WIFR) – The man accused of shooting and killing a Rockford attorney back in 2008 is now asking for time to hire a lawyer.

52-year-old Richard Wanke made his first court appearance on first-degree murder charges. Charges were just filed last week in the death of Greg Clark. Wanke was about to leave prison on parole a few weeks ago where he had been serving time for a burglary conviction. He’s now in the Winnebago County jail without bond.

Wanke’s arraignment is scheduled to take place on May 2nd.
