REDWOOD CITY, California – The lawyer for the undocumented Filipino charged with killing three men in a shooting rampage in a bar in Ohio is asking the court for funds to help defend his client.

Igmidio Mista's Toledo-based attorney, David Klucas, filed a motion requesting for funds to hire experts who could assist him in Mista's defense.

Klucas did not share details about his request with local media.

Mista, 33, is charged with killing three men in a March 9 shooting rampage at the Last Call Bar in Fremont, Ohio.

One of the men killed was an off-duty police officer who was celebrating his birthday.

If convicted, Mista could face up to 75 years to life in prison.
