New Judge in Macias Case

Posted: Updated:

The judge presiding over the Jose Angel Macias trial has recused herself from the case.

18 year old Macias is accused of fatally shooting a man outside a convenience store last month.

Friday afternoon, Judge Angelica Hernandez was reviewing the case file prior to a scheduled bond hearing, when she says she recognized the name of one of the key witnesses.

Because of that...she made the decision to recuse herself. Judge Longoria is now presiding over the case.
