Calls for judge in Connolly case to resign

There was a call on Tuesday night for the resignation of the judge who handled visitation issues for two boys killed by their father. More than 1,000 people have signed an online petition asking that Judge James Souk "be held accountable" for allowing Michael Connolly, 40, to have unsupervised visits with his sons Duncan, 9, and Jack, 7.

The bodies of all three were found Sunday, three weeks after Connolly failed to return the boys following a custody visit.

Investigators say Michael Connolly apparently hung or strangled himself. They are not saying how the boys died because their mother doesn't want to know.
