Prosecutors in the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez want the judge to recuse herself.  Hernandez was at a pretrial hearing Wednesday, his first time in court since being arraigned. 

Assistant District Attorney William McCauley says he plans to file a motion to ask Judge Susan Garsh to give up the case.  He referred to a 2010 case both he and Garsh were involved in, but declined further comment. 

Hernandez's lawyers say they'll object to a recusal. The judge didn't hear arguments on the issue. Instead, she scheduled a hearing for Oct. 21.   

Hernandez was indicted in August in the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.  (Associated Press)
