Should John Munzanreder pay for his own attorney or should taxpayers foot the bill? That was the question in front of a judge Thursday during a hearing in Yakima County Superior Court.

Munzanreder is being held in connection with the shooting death of his wife Cynthia in the parking lot of a Union Gap theater earlier this month. Prosecutors say Munzanreder has assets and should be forced to pay for his own attorney fees. A judge will make a decision in the case within the next month.
