Shanee Liggins, Frostburg State student, retains private counsel
FROSTBURG, Md. (AP) - A female Frostburg State University student charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing of another female student has retained private counsel.
Court records in Cumberland show that attorneys William Brennan and William Mitchell of Greenbelt signed on Tuesday to defend 23-year-old Shanee Liggins of Waldorf. They defended another Frostburg State student against murder and attempted-murder charges last year.
Liggins was previously represented by public defenders on charges she murdered 19-year-old Kortneigh McCoy of Baltimore outside an off-campus house party Nov. 6. Liggins told police that someone else stabbed McCoy.
Brennan and Mitchell defended Tyrone Hall of Glen Burnie last year. He is serving five years after pleading guilty to manslaughter of Brandon Carroll and second-degree assault of Ellis Hartridge Jr. Both victims were Frostburg State basketball players.
