Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The man convicted of killing a 21-year old in Johnson City tells the Broome County Court he was unhappy with his lawyer's representation and his defense strategy.

In June, jurors found Maurice Anthony, of Brooklyn, guilty of all charges in the 2010 murder Eric Dantzler, of Binghamton.

Anthony was convicted on one count of first-degree murder, one count of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted robbery.

In December 2010, Anthony shot Dantzler in his vehicle on Corliss Avenue in Johnson City back.

On Tuesday, Anthony told Judge Joseph Cawley he did not agree with any of the trial proceedings and would like to file a motion to modify the verdict.

However, Anthony said he wants to keep his current lawyer, Michael Korchek.

The judge gave them 45 days to file a motion. Anthony was scheduled to be sentenced next week.
