MANTI, Utah — Utah’s so-called “Mountain Man” burglar was in court Wednesday to ask for a new attorney.

Troy James Knapp appeared in a Manti court and told the judge he isn’t happy with his lawyer and wants a new one.

Knapp was wanted for more than six years for a string of cabin burglaries across several counties in southern and central Utah. He was caught in April near Ferron Reservoir in Sanpete County.
