Court records show Special District Judge Pandee Ramirez on Tuesday rejected the request to recuse herself by defense attorneys for 38-year-old Amy Leann Hall. Attorneys say Ramirez should disqualify herself because she is already overseeing a case involving Hall and the surviving child.
Hall is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the November shooting deaths of 18-year-old Kayson Toliver and 16-year-old Kloee Toliver and one count of shooting with intent to kill a 14-year-old daughter, who was wounded but managed to take the gun from her mother.
Court records do not show that Hall has entered a plea.
