Attorney General Troy King has asked the Jefferson County circuit court to pull the public-provided attorney to the Bobby Frank Cherry case.
Cherry was convicted in May 2002 of killing four girls in the 1963 Birmingham church bombing. He died in an Alabama prison last November. Cherry was one of three former Ku Klux Klan members convicted in the blast.
In December, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals rejected a motion from Birmingham attorney Charles Flowers to throw out Cherry's conviction.
King wants the court to stop paying Flowers now that Cherry is dead.
