New attorney joins Dystiny Myers case

A new lawyer has joined the defense for the Dystiny Myers murder case.

Tom McCormick is officially representing Rhonda Wisto. He's replacing David Wells, who chose to step down last month, saying he didn't have the energy needed to represent her. We caught up with McCormick outside the courthouse.

"I've gone through the entire file and feel comfortable about the case," he said. "There's no motive for my client to commit this crime."

McCormick says the five defendants in the case could be tried separately because some of them have made statements against each other. The judge continued the case until June 1st. Myers' burned body was found in Santa Margarita last September. She was 15 at the time.
