Judge denies recusal request in Garrard case

Joyce Garrard

ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Circuit Judge Billy Ogletree has denied Joyce Garrard’s request that he recuse himself from the case.

Garrard is charged with capital murder for the death of 9-year-old Savannah Hardin. She died in 2012.

Garrard questioned the judge’s ability to handle the case fairly because he presided over Hardin’s custody hearing.

Her trial is set for June.
