Recusal of judge sought in Hernandez case in Mass.
Wednesday - 10/9/2013, 5:10pm EDT
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) -- Prosecutors in the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez want the judge to recuse herself.
Hernandez was at a pretrial hearing Wednesday, his first time in court since being arraigned.
Assistant District Attorney William McCauley says he plans to file a motion to ask Judge Susan Garsh to give up the case. He hasn't explained why but referred to a 2010 case he and Garsh were both involved in. At the time, he accused Garsh of being antagonistic to prosecutors and limiting or excluding their evidence.
Hernandez's lawyers say they'll object to a recusal. Garsh didn't hear arguments on the issue.
Hernandez has been indicted in the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.
He has pleaded not guilty.
