Delphi murders suspect's attorneys seek judge's removal or recusal
Attorneys for Richard Allen, suspected in the Delphi murders of Abby Williams and Libby German, are seeking the special judge's removal or recusal.

DELPHI, Ind. (WLS) -- There's more drama on Monday night in the case of two murdered girls in Delphi, Indiana.

Attorneys for suspect Richard Allen are once again calling for the removal or recusal of the special judge presiding over the case.

The attorneys were just reinstated to represent Allen.

In a new filing, they argue that the judge interfered with the attorney-client relationship by removing them. They also question the judge's impartiality.

Allen is charged with killing 13-year-old Abby Williams and 14-year-old Libby German in 2017.
