There is more drama in the Richard Allen murder case. Allen is the man authorities say killed Abby Williams and Libby German in Delphi in 2017. Now, Allen’s remaining defense attorney is asking that the judge in the case be thrown out. Fox 59 is reporting Attorney Bradley Rozzi claims Special Judge Fran Gull “ambushed” and “coerced” the defense team to drop out. Rozzi and a court-appointed have been preparing a defense case for Allen for nearly a year. They are scheduled to be back in court with their client next Tuesday. Judge Gull is expected to name new defense lawyers and set a new trial date.
