A judge has decided that accused killer Aramis Jackson will not get new lawyers.

District Court Judge Tony Marabella ruled on the motion Wednesday that he believes there is no conflict with Jackson's current attorneys. Attorney David  Price with the Baton Rouge Conflict Office is handling his case and claims he should be allowed to withdraw because of a conflict with Jackson's father in another murder case. The suspect has already been through several lawyers.

"They indicated an appeal will be filed, pre-trial,"prosecutor Darwin Miller tells 9-news. "This means we stay on course and avoids delays in the case."

Jackson is accused of shooting Alexandra Engler and her daughter, Ariana, during a home invasion in September 2010. He is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Engler was shot to death inside her Beauregard Town home. Her daughter, who was nine years old at the time, was seriously wounded in the attack.

Investigators said Jackson's DNA was found on Engler's door.
