New Attorney For Man Accused in Strip Club Murder

John Knospler Jr
Natrona County Sheriff’s Office

A Former Pennsylvania Marine, accused of killing a man outside of a Natrona County strip club, has retained new counsel and has had his preliminary hearing moved to next month.

Thirty-three-year-old John Knospler Junior is facing one charge of second degree murder in the death of 24-year old James Baldwin.

The charges stem from an incident outside of Racks Gentlemen’s Club in Mills, where investigators believe that Knospler shot Baldwin to death earlier this month.

During a hearing Thursday morning, the law firm of Chapman/Valdez stood down as Knospler’s representation in the case, now Knospler is being defended by Joseph H. Low, an attorney based in Long Beach, California, with Grant H. Lawson from The Spence Law Firm as a local attorney.

Knospler had originally been scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday, to determine if the case will be bound over to District Court.   However, at the request of the defense, the hearing has been continued for a later date. Low saying that the defense was not ready for a preliminary hearing and that he had a schedule conflict with a case in Kentucky next week.

Knospler’s preliminary hearing is now scheduled for early November.
