ALTON, Ill.-- AP -- An Alton attorney is free on bond after being accused of growing marijuana in the basement of a home he owns.

Prosecutors in Madison County on Monday charged 56-year-old Bradford Hunt with two felony counts of unlawful production of marijuana plants and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of marijuana.

The (Alton) Telegraph says police investigating a reported burglary at the house found two dozen marijuana plants in the basement, along with equipment used to grow the drug.

Hunt’s home telephone has been disconnected, and calls to his office on Tuesday morning went unanswered. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.

   BOSTON (AP) - Prominent death penalty lawyer Judy Clarke is joining the team representing the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

   The appointment of Clarke, based in San Diego, Calif., was approved Monday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler.

   Bowler denied a request from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's public defender to appoint a second death penalty lawyer. Bowler says Tsarnaev's lawyers could renew their motion to appoint another death penalty expert if Tsarnaev is indicted.

   The 19 year old Tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction during the April 15 marathon. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line.

   Clarke's clients have included Unabomber Ted Kaczynski; Susan Smith, who drowned her two children; and most recently Tucson, Ariz., shooter Jared Loughner. All received life sentences instead of the death penalty.
