Recusal of judge sought in Hernandez case

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 says the state does not take the request lightly.

Hernandez’s lawyers say they’ll object to a recusal. The judge didn’t hear arguments on the issue.

Hernandez was indicted in August in the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.

He has pleaded not guilty. The defense says the state won’t be able to prove its case.

Colts add running back, linebacker to roster

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts signed running back Dan Herron and linebacker Andy Studebaker to their active roster Wednesday.

Herron replaced Ahmad Bradshaw, who was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list Wednesday because of a neck injury.

The 5-foot-10, 212-pound Herron had been on the Bengals practice squad. Herron was Cincinnati’s sixth-round draft pick in 2012 draft. He had five carries for five yards and blocked a punt as a rookie.

Studebaker played in 70 games, starting eight with Kansas City, from 2008 to 2012. The 6-foot-3, 248-pound free agent had career totals of 51 tackles, 2½ sacks and two interceptions before he was released by the Chiefs in April.
