    The article I read said they have a prosecutor who plans to be certified, but currently they don't have one who is. James should be able to confirm?

    This was the article we ran, which mentions defenders, not prosecutors:

    FORT WAYNE (AP) — Indiana’s second most populous county has no attorneys certified by the Indiana Public Defender Commission to handle capital cases as it wrestles with one of its more notorious slayings in recent years.
    Such certification would allow Allen County to be reimbursed by the state for defense costs incurred during a capital case.
    Allen County Chief Public Defender Randall Hammond says Michael Plumadore of Fort Wayne will have certified public defenders available if death penalty charges are filed against him. He faces murder and other charges in connection with the Dec. 22 death of 9-year-old Aliahna Maroney-Lemmon.
    Plumadore has two public defenders not yet certified for capital cases. Certification requires prior death penalty experience and a 12-hour course.

    Hm. Well, with all the murders in Fort Wayne, why haven't they had any capital cases?
