Ovey Asks To Be Recused In Russell Case



Commonwealth's Attorney G. L. Ovey is requesting to be recused from the Claude Russell murder trial. The motion, filed Tuesday, cites a recent motion filed by Russell's Defense Attorney John Stewart. Ovey says allegations that have been made against him will result in him being a material witness in the case, and require him to testify. Ovey has denied all of the allegations made against him.

In a motion for dismissal, filed by Stewart, Ovey is accused of not identifying the writer of a 2009 letter that accused then Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander of being a suspect in the Chantell Humphries murder case. Stewart also accuses the prosecutor of not turning over all the evidence, failing to disclose former Trooper, now Sheriff, Ray Burnam's involvement in the investigation, discrepancies in the location of the murder weapon and other allegations. Ovey has scheduled a Thursday news conference to discuss the allegations, and his recusal motion.
