The judge presiding over Aaron Hernandez's murder case has rejected prosecutor's request to recuse herself.
According to Fox News Latino, Judge Susan Garsh said on Monday that she would not step aside and that she held no bias against prosecutors.
“I have no bias against the Commonwealth or against First Assistant District Attorney William McCauley,’’ Judge Garsh said after hearing McCauley and another prosecutor argue for 45 minutes for her recusal, according to The Boston Globe.
“A person aware of all facts and circumstances would not reasonably question my impartiality," she said.
The Washington Post reports that Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter said he believed the hearing was fair and that the state will not appeal. “She said that she would [be fair], and I take her at her word.”
