SALT LAKE CITY – Lawyers for 18-year-old Meagan Grunwald want Judge Darold McDade disqualified.

Grunwald is serving 25 years to life in prison after she was found guilty of aggravated murder and ten other crimes.

The teen was with Jose Angel Garcia-Jauregui when he shot and killed Utah County Sheriff’s deputy Cory Wride and injured Deputy Greg Sherwood during a chase in 2014.

Two weeks ago, her defense team filed a motion for a new trial. They claim judge McDade allowed improper testimony and showed bias against Grunwald.
