Published:
SEATTLE — King County prosecutors are seeking a new trial judge in the death penalty cases against two people accused of killing a family of six in Carnation in 2007.
The prosecutor’s office on Friday took the unusual step of asking the state Supreme Court to remove King County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Ramsdell from the cases against Michele Anderson and Joseph McEnroe.
Ramsdell declined comment to The Seattle Times on Friday.
In their court filing, prosecutors cite the judge’s “troubling” ruling in the cases. The higher court has reversed the judge’s ruling twice.
Anderson and McEnroe have been pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated first-degree murder in the slaughter of Anderson’s family — her parents, brother, sister-in-law, and her young niece and nephew.
