Circuit Judge Charles King presided over Murray's case and trial and will sentence him.
Murray has a history of being unsatisfied with his court-appointed attorneys, and had asked several times to have them changed. He asked again this week to have Tom Price and Tim Carrico, his third and fourth defenders, removed from his case.
The judge did relieve Carrico, but ordered Price to handle the recidivist case.
The May jury recommended mercy for Murray, meaning he would be eligible to face a parole board in the future. The recidivist conviction doesn't change that, but it extends the time frame.
His projected release date is now February 2018.
Testimony in the May trial revealed that Murray and his brother, Deshawne Taylor, were drug customers of the Pooles. The brothers were attempting to force the couple to show them their "stash house" where most of the drugs and money were kept.
Taylor pleaded guilty to conspiracy to kidnap.
