Former Talk KLIK-A/JEFFERSON CITY, MO "PARTY LINE" midday host JAMES KEOWN will need some new lawyers after the attorneys defending him in his murder trial have withdrawn.
The BOSTON HERALD reports that attorneys J.W. CARNEY and JANICE BASSIL have dropped their representation of KEOWN, citing irreconcilable differences with their client. KEOWN, who also previously worked for WRKO-A/BOSTON, was arrested last NOVEMBER for the murder of his wife JULIE KEOWN by poisoning her drinks with anti-freeze in SEPTEMBER 2004. KEOWN's next court appearance is scheduled for NOVEMBER 30.
