Attorney apologizes to Behrmans
MARTINSVILLE — An Indianapolis attorney who represented a Morgan County man convicted in the 2000 death of an Indiana University student has apologized to the families of the victim and suspect for his actions during the trial.
Attorney Patrick V. Baker on Tuesday told Eric Behrman he was sorry he alleged that Behrman’s 19-year-old daughter, Jill, might have been pregnant at the time she was killed. He also apologized to the mother of John Myers for actions he says weren’t ethical during a hearing in Morgan County.
