MADISON (WKOW) -- The lawyer for Chad Chritton is quitting the case.
Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese has allowed William Hayes to withdraw from representing Chritton.
Hayes wrote in a motion that it was causing him deep financial harm.
Chad Chritton is accused of torturing and starving his teenage daughter.
A jury last month convicted him of child neglect but deadlocked on four other counts.
Prosecutors plan to retry him on those counts.
