Reportedly, the judge who was supposed to be presiding over the Trayvon Martin murder case has been removed from her position.
The attorney of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, felt that Jessica Reckseidler represented a conflict of interest, due to her husband’s relationship with a CNN legal analyst.
Supposedly, Jessica’s husband is partners with Mark NeJame, who is working on covering the trial for the network.
The judge appointed in place of Reckseidler will now be Kenneth R. Lester, Jr., who’s covered many other publicized murder cases, including one involving an ax murderer.
Lester is known for coming to decisions quickly and will preside over the case when Zimmerman is brought to trial for the February 26 shooting.
Zimmerman is currently facing second-degree murder charges, with a bond hearing scheduled for Friday.
We can only hope that justice will be served.
May Trayvon rest in peace.
