A new judge has been assigned to the armed robbery case against Michael Warren of Alexandria.

Warren, 27, appeared in Douglas County District Friday and his attorney requested Judge Dave Battey to recuse himself because Battey was the judge who signed the search warrants that were executed in the case.


Judge Ann Carrott will now preside.

An omnibus hearing to consider evidence in the case will be scheduled soon.
