|Connor Wood attorney withdraws motion for new trial|
The lawyer for convicted murderer Connor Wood, 17, withdrew his motion last week for a new trial and recusal of the trial judge.
Harrisonburg attorney Paul Lempke III withdrew the motion in open court on October 15.
Wood was sentenced on April 30, 2008, to three life terms after his conviction in the March 14, 2007, shooting deaths of his mother, Geraldine Trevillion Wood, 40; his father, John David Wood, 42; and 16-year-old Matthew Whittington.
The homicides occurred at the Wood's home on 119 Shady Lane in the Woodland Subdivision of Ferriday. Wood was 15 at the time of the murders.
Lempke had file a motion in September that Judge Leo Boothe, while presiding over the Wood case, be recused and that a new trial be ordered.
Lempke claimed that the judge was being represented by the Jonesville law firm Smith, Taliaferro & Purvis in a Catahoula Parish civil action. Brad Burget, the prosecutor in the Wood case, works for the firm.
The suit alleged that Boothe and Burget "knew they had a client-attorney relationship and neither the prosecutor nor the judge gave disclosure of this fact to the defendant or counsel for the defendant."
