TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka man who faces more than 100 child pornography charges will get a new attorney.

A Shawnee County judge on Wednesday appointed a new attorney for Jason W. Hachmeister, who said he no longer trusted attorney Napoleon Crews, of Lawrence.

The 39-year-old Hachmeister is charged with 108 counts of sexual exploitation of a child. His trial is scheduled to start June 24.

Hachmeister is charged in another case with killing his mother in 2011.

Prosecutors say the child pornography was found on Hachmeister's personal computer during an investigation into the September 2011 killing of 58-year-old Sheila R. Hachmeister of Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/11BCbwD ) jury selection in the murder trial is scheduled to start Sept. 9.
